All of WJFF's meetings are Open Meetings- i.e.the public is welcome to observe. This time of year, it is often wise to avoid driving on hazardous or potentially hazardous roads. Instead of cancelling, committee chairs may choose to conduct meetings on a conference call. The public is invited to call in to listen. Just as in meetings off the phone, the public is invited to listen, not participate, in discussions.
Most meetings will include a time for Public Comment.
Send any questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
