Using Zoom to Participate in Public Meetings, as of April 2, 2020.
During this time when the City of St. George is holding public meetings electronically, all City Council and Planning Commission Meetings will take place over the Zoom platform. The link and instructions for attendees, applicants, and representatives of the applicant to join the Zoom meeting will be included in the public meeting notices.
There are two ways to join a public meeting using Zoom:
1) Follow the instructions on the public notice or the city website on a mobile device or desktop to enter the meeting online. The Zoom Group Chat should be reserved for persons who wish to speak at a public hearing and are recognized by the person conducting the meeting. Remember that this is a public record. If your device does not have a microphone and you wish to participate in a public hearing, use option 2.
2) To join by phone, call any of the phone numbers provided and enter the meeting number after the prompt.
By default, all microphones, webcams, and cameras will be turned off, except for the mayor, city council members, planning commissioners, city staff, and persons recognized to speak. Attendees can request to speak on agenda items three ways:
1) For users attending in the Zoom app, type in the Zoom Group Chat box that they wish to speak on a specific item. City staff members will coordinate with those attendees through chat and their microphones and webcams will be enabled when they are recognized to speak.
2) When items are open to public discussion, the Mayor or planning commissioner will ask for anybody wishing to participate to please raise their hands. On a phone call, you raise your hand by entering *9 on the keypad. In the Zoom meeting, this can be done by clicking on the “Raise Hand” icon in the Zoom app, pressing Alt-Y on Windows, or pressing Option-Y on MacOS. After the public discussion is closed, city staff will lower all hands.
