In an effort to streamline the administrative side of the commenting process, Council staff have been working on developing an online eCommenting portal. Instead of emailing the Council with comments, this process will allow the public to submit them through an online form accessible through our website. The commenter can choose an agenda item from a drop-down menu, and either comment directly on the online form, or upload an attachment. Once the comment deadline is closed, comments will be made visible through a permanent link on our website. This process will allow more flexibility to adjust the due date for comments prior to a Council meeting. Watch for the possible debut prior to the February 2018 Council meeting at meetings.npfmc.org!
