Citizen's Forum

How to Participate in the Citizen’s Forum

At the March 18th, 2020 Chisago County Board of Commissioners Meeting, the Board of Commissioners voted 5-0 to temporarily suspend the current format of the ‘Citizen’s Forum’ at County Board Meetings, consisting of an in-person, oral forum, and instead institute a written forum until further notice. This change is due to the increasing public health threat related to the COVID-19 virus, and the necessity of keeping and maintaining social distancing, balanced against the desire of the Board to provide an opportunity for the public to express ideas, issues or concerns in these extremely difficult and unprecedented times.

All citizens are welcome to submit a ‘Citizen Forum’ comment, statement, question or proposal using our Citizen Forum Online Form, send thru the U.S. Post Office, or email to the County Administrator at least two (2) hours prior to the start of the scheduled county board meetings, so that the letter or e-mail may be copied and distributed to the Chisago County Board of Commissioners. The County Commissioners may choose to read individual letters or parts of letters aloud after recognizing the author.

It is requested that you provide your full name and address, including commissioner’s district, if known. All the letters or emails should be written to make a comment, statement, question or proposal to the County Board. All letters shall be directed to the Board as a whole, and not to individual commissioners. All letters should be written in a respectful manner and or tone and refrain from the use of profanity.

Send your comment, statement, question or proposal to County Administrator Chase Burnham using our Citizen Forum Online Form, send thru the U.S. Post Office, or Email to Chase Burnham.
