Hanover County is striving to conduct the public’s business, take the necessary precautions to protect residents participating in public meetings, and comply with Governor Northam’s guidelines prohibiting large gatherings and maintaining social distancing. Hanover County has expanded the ways residents may provide comment without having to appear in person by establishing an email address for both Citizens Time (items NOT on the Agenda) and the Public Hearings (items ON the Agenda). Comments left within the email box will be made a part of the meeting record. The deadline for submitting comments is Wednesday, May 19th at 5:00 p.m.
