All of our meetings are conducted in accordance with the Open Public Meetings Act and, with the exception of executive sessions, are open to the public.

Public hearings are held to provide citizens an opportunity to present testimony, comment on the salary proposal being considered, and to hear other issues related to the salary, duties and responsibilities of the elected officials. These meetings are held in cities around the state to provide citizen access to, and involvement in, the decision-making process.

We encourage and welcome your attendance at our meetings. If you wish to comment but cannot attend a meeting, click on Contact Us for information about how to inform us of your views.
