In Regards to COVID-19:
On March 17, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom issued Executive Order N-29-20, relating to the convening of public meetings in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The County of Tulare hereby provides notice that it will continue to convene its regularly scheduled public meetings of the Board of Supervisors in the Board Chambers at 2800 W. Burrel Ave, Visalia, as provided in the publicly posted agenda notice, and until further notice.
Based on guidance from the California Department of Public Health and the California Governor’s Office, to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus, members of the public are encouraged to participate in the Board meetings in the following ways:
1. REMOTE VIEWING: Listen to the live audio stream of the Board of Supervisors meetings at http://tulare.granicus.com/ViewPublisher.php?view_id=2
2. PUBLIC COMMENT: If you choose not to attend the Board of Supervisors meeting but wish to comment on a specific agenda item we have the following options available:
a. Submit written comments on an agenda item to the Clerk of the Board firstname.lastname@example.org
for distribution to the Board of Supervisors before the meeting. If you would like to support, oppose, or otherwise comment on a Board of Supervisors' agenda item, please consider sending in your comment rather than attending the meeting in person. All communication, whether it is a formal letter or a one-line informal email, is read by the Board of Supervisors. Also, if you are part of a large group that would like to comment on an agenda item, please consider commenting in writing or sending one spokesperson to speak on behalf of the group.
Written comments may also be submitted by U.S. mail, at:

b. To participate during the Board meeting, please call (559) 636-5045. Each caller will, one at a time, be connected to the Board room to address the Board in the same manner as if the caller were there in person. The caller will be requested to state his or her name and address for the record, and the caller's statements will go through the PA system in order to be heard by everyone in the room. The statements will go out on the live audio stream and will be included in the audio recording of the meeting. The three (3) minute limit will apply to all public comments.
c. Alternatively, you may participate during the Board meeting by submitting an email as the item is being heard. Emails should include the sender’s name and address for the record. Emails should include the agenda item number and sent to the Clerk of the Board at email@example.com
.Every effort will be made to read your comment into the record, but some comments may not be read due to time limitations. Comments received after an agenda item will be made part of the record if received before the end of the meeting.
3. If you attend the Board of Supervisors meeting in person, all attendees will be requested to engage in social distancing measures by maintaining a 6-foot distance from other attendees. Exposed surfaces will be sanitized prior to the meeting and attendees are encouraged to avoid contact with surfaces such as microphones and door handles. Large groups wishing to comment on a common item are encouraged to submit comments in writing or to send one spokesperson to speak on behalf of the group.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
