Public Participation

The public has the opportunity to attend the Board of Commissioners' regular meetings. Regular meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month. Public hearings, where members of the public are invited to speak directly to the Board, are held during the regular Board of Commissioners meetings. Members of the public can also attend meetings of the five standing committees within the commission.

Press releases and current events are posted on DeKalb County's website DeKalb News. Also, all regular Board meetings, held on every second and fourth Tuesday of the month, are broadcast live on Channel 23. Due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic, all Board of Commissioner hearings are being held remotely until further notice; live broadcasting of Committee hearings can be viewed on DCTV.  The meetings are also re-broadcast on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 7:00 pm, Wednesday at 9:00 am, and Saturday and Sunday at 10:00 am.
