How to Participate
As always, public feedback and community participation are very important to establish budgets. Public comments on the overall county budget will begin at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 23, 2023.
Each service district public hearing features a public comment period near the end. You will be prompted by the emcee to speak when it is your turn. Comments should be kept to under three minutes.
For members of the public that would like to view the meetings, but not participate, #ClackCo TV will live stream the meetings.
Public In-Person Attendance
All budget meetings will be held in person in the Board Hearing Room (Public Service Building, 2051 Kaen Rd, Oregon City, OR 97045, FL 4). All members of the public visiting the Public Service Building should sign in at the front desk of the first floor lobby.
Public Speaking Comments
The Zoom platform allows you to provide live comments over video or the phone. During the District and Agency hearings on May 22, 2023, the Clerk will call for public testimony at the appropriate time. The Clackamas County Budget Committee's public hearing will be on Tuesday, May 23, 2023, at 6 p.m. For all public testimony, please use the "Raise Hand" feature on Zoom and you will be called in the order received.

Emailed Public Comments
The public has the option of submitting comments via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Those submissions will not be read aloud during the public comment periods, but will be sent to the relevant committee members and added to the record. Please email public comments with the Subject Line of either “County Budget public comment” or “[Service District Name] public comment.” Parties should include their name and area of residence.
