CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Next week’s Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors meeting on Wednesday, May 27, will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams to decrease the spread of COVID-19. The changes are designed to accommodate public input while encouraging the public to continue self-quarantining and practicing social distancing, as recommended by health officials.
The virtual meeting will begin at 6 p.m. rather than 2 p.m., as previously scheduled, and will be available for listening on Comcast Channel 98, Verizon Channel 28, and live streamed on chesterfield.gov and the County’s YouTube channel.
Citizens who wish to make comments on the portion of the Board’s agenda known as "Citizen Comment Period on Unscheduled Matters" can submit comments via the online form; or call in comments and leave a message at 804-748-1808. A maximum of 15 citizens may leave comments for this meeting in accordance with the Board’s procedures on “Citizen Comment Period on Unscheduled Matters.” The portal will close at 5 p.m. on the day prior to the scheduled board meeting (May 26) in order to prepare comments for the public and the board to see in a timely manner; prior to the Board meeting.
