FWC virtual meeting open to the public

By FWC - | Oct 5, 2020

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will meet virtually on Oct. 7 and Oct. 8 starting at 9 a.m. The meeting will be held virtually due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines.

The meeting is being held by communications media technology, specifically using Adobe Connect with a telephone conference line for accepting public comments during the meeting. The Florida Channel will be broadcasting live video coverage at TheFloridaChannel.org and participants watching via the Florida Channel can utilize the telephone conference line to call in for public comment.

The FWC is committed to providing opportunity for public input. To accommodate as much input as possible from those participating in the meeting, the chairman reserves the right to designate the amount of time given to a topic or speaker, including time donation to other speakers. Because the meeting is being held by video conference and a telephone conference line, the commission is limiting public comment to a specific length of time for each agenda item. See agenda for the time limits for each item. Public comment will be taken by telephone conference line on a first call-first serve basis.
