  • Welcome to the Department’s annual public hearing season! 

    Public hearings are an opportunity to voice your opinion about something important to you, where it’s most likely to be noticed, written down or recorded, and formalized.  Hearings give citizens a chance to contribute to the discussion regarding decisions made by the public officials.
