New Guidelines for Port of Olympia Commission Meetings

By Karen Robes Meeks

On Friday, the Port of Olympia released new guidelines for how the public can attend and post comments for remote commission meetings, which the port began practicing March 9 to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

Those wanting to provide public comment must sign up in advance or submit written comments by 9 a.m. on the day of the meeting at commissioncoordinator@portolympia.com.

Written input will be gathered and delivered to the commission before the meeting starts.

In order to speak at the meeting, individuals must sign up by 9 a.m. on meeting day at commissioncoordinator@portolympia.com and confirm if the comments will be provided via computer or phone. Comments are limited to a three-minute window.
