Roos noted that due to COVID-19 all attendees will be required to abide by CDC protocol of social distancing.

All comments will be limited to 250 words or less.

“Every effort will be made to read your comment into the record, but some comments may not be read due to time limitation,” Roos said in an earlier posting on the matter.
