March 25 Board of Supervisors Meeting
Format Modified
The  format for the March 25 Board of Supervisors meeting , which includes multiple public hearings related Chesterfield County’s proposed fiscal 2021 budget, has been modified to decrease the spread of the coronavirus known as COVID-19.

The following rules for the meeting are subject to change at any time pending recommendations by health officials who are continually monitoring the situation.
  • Access to the Public Meeting Room will be extremely limited.
  • Citizens are highly encouraged to use an online form to submit their comments, instead of coming to speak in person:
  • Citizens may submit online comments in advance of the public hearings until March 24 at 5 p.m., and all electronic comments will be distributed to Board of Supervisors members prior to the public hearings on March 25.
  • The online form will, again, be available for use the day of the public hearings, and all additional comments received will be provided to Board of Supervisors members.
  • Comments received by the close of the public hearings on Wednesday evening will be recorded in the minutes of the meeting.
  • No more than eight citizens at a time will be allowed into the Public Meeting Room to speak.
  • Upon arrival, citizens will be directed to multiple staging areas supervised by sheriff’s deputies and then escorted to the Public Meeting Room at the appropriate time. Staging areas will consist of no more than eight participants.
  • The lectern and mic inside the Public Meeting Room will be cleaned after each speaker, and speakers are instructed to not touch the lectern or the mic at any time.
  • Each speaker must leave the Public Meeting Room immediately following their remarks.
  • Any group wishing to come speak should select a single representative to speak on the group’s behalf or consider using the online form.
  • Individuals or groups wishing to come thank Board members for their financial support of programs or services are advised to use the online form or consider other correspondence methods.
  • Speakers who have signed up ahead of time to speak will be contacted and encouraged to use the online form, instead of attending.
