Town hall meeting - Town hall meetings, also referred to as town halls or town hall forums,
are a way for local politicians to meet with their constituents either to hear from them topics
of interest or to discuss specific upcoming legislation or regulation. They tend to be in a conversational format and not have a formal agenda.
Township Board meeting - essentially a staff meeting for the township board members, with a public comment at either the beginning or end of the meeting. During this meeting, routine but important township business is addressed, such as payment of bills and approval of future projects. Board members receive a packet of information prior to the meeting and are responsible for reviewing it prior to the meeting.
Public comment - this is an opportunity for the public to make a comment or statement to the board or commission members. Comments can be made on any subject, but it is not designed to be a question/answer format. Please raise your hand to be recognized by chairperson so that everyone gets a chance to be heard in an orderly manner. You may be asked to speak at the podium and you may be asked to condense your comments to comply with time restraints.
Public hearing - this is a scheduled meeting to gather information/comments from the public on a particular topic.
* Remember, If you have questions or need general information, please contact the township offices and the appropriate board member can help you! You can contact us by phone, letter, email or in person!
