The Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners invites all residents to Connect with Mecklenburg County by participating in the governing process.  The Board welcomes public comment and looks forward to hearing from you! Towards the beginning of every regular meeting, there is a section of the agenda called Public Appearance that provides time for the public to address the Board on subjects not appearing on the agenda.  The public may also address specific agenda items at the time the Board discusses them. Speakers will be given up to three (3) minutes each to speak. Speakers may not use their time for campaign purposes or make budget requests. Budget requests must be addressed at Budget Public Hearings which typically occur in January and May each year.  In 2024, they occur on January 17, 2024, and May 23, 2024.

Please review the policy, the agenda, and the meeting calendar before submitting your form.
