Governor Little made a proclamation that clarified Open Meeting Laws during this state of emergency include an option for communities to hear and decide applications through telecommunication devices.

Therefore, future Kootenai County public meetings will take place virtually using the Zoom online meeting application. Testimony will also be heard through the Zoom online meeting application. Public comments will be taken during the virtual public hearings by indicating a “raised hand” through the Zoom online meeting application.  If you wish to provide oral testimony for the June 18th hearing, please sign up in advance of the meeting here.

For instructions on how to participate in the virtual meetings, please contact Community Development at 208-446-1070. 

Future public meetings will also be available to view live on the Kootenai County YouTube channel .

Comments submitted on YouTube however will not be included in the record.

If you are interested in participating in the hearing via Zoom AND also plan to watch the YouTube livestream, please mute the device playing the livestream to eliminate echoing.

Physical attendance at the public hearings may be allowed  at some point in the future with distancing guidelines IF the stay at home order (stipulating no more than ten people shall physically gather at the same time) is lifted PRIOR to the scheduled public hearing dates.   Please watch the Community Development website for updates to scheduling.
