Telephone Town Hall 5/4

The Weld County Board of Commissioners will be holding a telephone town hall on Monday, May 4, 2020, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

“We want to speak directly to county residents to provide an overview of the state of county government during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Commissioner Chairman Mike Freeman. “We will update residents on the county’s continuity of government plan, how government functions continued during the past two months and what county operations will look like as our buildings reopen. Residents will also be updated on the emergency operations center and the work being done to help combat COVID-19. And we will talk about the county’s budget given the dramatic drop in the price of oil.”

Some residents will receive a pre-recorded call the day before and the day of the event inviting them to join the telephone town hall, but anyone can call into the event by dialing 877-229-8493 with ID code 119533 when the event starts. The telephone town hall format will allow residents to not only listen to the board’s remarks but also ask questions.

“This will be the first time Weld County Government has conducted a telephone town hall,” Freeman said. “We anticipate it being a great way to update and engage with the public.”

Vekeo, the vendor providing the service, accesses phone numbers from Weld County registered voter lists and will randomly select 52,000 phone numbers to call for the event. All county residents, however, are invited to call in a participate.
