How to Provide Testimony

Written Testimony

To submit your written comments use the Written Testimony Form or send an email to Assembly@fnsb.gov.

Telephonic Testimony During Regular and Special Assembly Meetings

Once the agenda has been published, call the Borough Clerk's Office at 907-459-1401 or complete the Sign-Up for Telephonic Testimony form by 4:30 p.m. on the day of the meeting to testify telephonically.

To complete the form, enter your first and last name, email address, phone number for the Clerk to call you during the meeting, and subject. Subjects are:

  • Citizens' Comments A
  • Citizens' Comments B
  • Ordinance/Resolution Number, Liquor License Number, or Marijuana License Number for Public Hearing Items

Note: Citizens may also comment on Contracts/Bid Awards on the Finance Committee Meeting agendas. 

What to Expect When Testifying Telephonically

Public testimony will be heard from citizens in the order in which they have signed up. The Clerk will call citizens who have signed up to testify at the phone numbers provided when it is their turn to speak. If you have caller ID the phone number will be an out-of-state number.

Once you are placed into the meeting, the Presiding Officer will ask that you state your name, spell your last name, and provide your neighborhood or place of residence for the record. Then your 3 minutes will begin.

Please note: If you do not answer the phone, then Presiding Officer will move to the next person on the list.
