Boards & Commissions
The Town of Waxhaw Board of Commissioners remains committed to providing an open, transparent public process, even amidst the challenges we face due to the local and global health pandemic, COVID-19 (Coronavirus). The Board of Commissioners and town staff are working diligently to ensure operational continuity in these challenging and uncertain times.
Governor Roy Cooper has issued Executive Orders 117, 118, 120 and 121 that impose restrictions intended to slow the spread of COVID-19, which includes limiting large events and gatherings of more than 10 people. For the public’s safety and compliance with the Governor’s Executive Orders, the Town of Waxhaw is converting regular meetings of the Board of Commissioners and its volunteer boards & commissions to a virtual platform (Zoom) for the duration of the North Carolina and Town of Waxhaw States of Emergency. For safety and compliance reasons, town facilities where these meetings are normally held will not be open. While the public is not permitted to gather in person to participate in these meetings, there are options to participate remotely:
TO WATCH LIVE: Meetings will be available via Zoom. All meeting participants (i.e. Board members, Town Manager, Town Attorney, Town Clerk, Department Heads and others) will participate in the meeting electronically. All attendees, including the public, will be able to see and hear the meeting participants in real time. A unique link will be provided for each meeting prior to the meeting date. An account is not necessary to join the meeting. A livestream of the meeting will also be available via the Town of Waxhaw YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaVNojVBJdyFHzC1zkvhK7w.
Citizens who have not used Zoom before are encouraged to familiarize themselves with this virtual platform. For more information, use the following link: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206618765-Zoom-Video-Tutorials.

PUBLIC COMMENTS: Members of the public may wish to submit comments that are related to the agenda or are general in nature. Public comments may be submitted through the town’s Public Comment Submission Form, which can be accessed through the following link: http://forms.waxhaw.com/Forms/PublicCommentSubmissionForm . Comments submitted through this form will be read into the record during the meeting. Public comments are limited to three minutes in length per person (approximately 300 words) and the Board will allocate fifteen minutes to read the submitted comments. Any comments not read during the meeting due to the time limit will be recorded in the meeting minutes. Public comments will be accepted through 5:00 pm on the day of the meeting
