Due to ongoing public health concerns related to COVID-19, the City of Hopewell is encouraging citizens to provide comments online. Remaining consistent with the City Council’s rules and procedures, each citizen has the opportunity to provide a comment, not to exceed 400 words, which is comparable to speaking for 3 minutes, during the citizen comment period for unscheduled matters. Comments are subject to the same rules as during the spoken citizen comment period and will be limited to the first 15 entries submitted using the online form. Only 1 entry per citizen will be accepted during this comment period on unscheduled matters. The portal will close at 5PM on the day prior to the scheduled Board meeting in order to prepare comments for the public and the Council to see in a timely manner; prior to the Council meeting.
