DRBC Public Business Meeting

  • Historic Hotel Bethlehem 437 Main Street Bethlehem, PA, 18018 United States

The Delaware River Basin Commission will be holding a Business Meeting, open to the public, which will include: adoption of the Minutes of the Commission’s June 15, 2016 business meeting, announcements of upcoming meetings and events, a report on hydrologic conditions, reports by the Executive Director and the Commission’s General Counsel, and consideration of any items for which a hearing has been completed or is not required.

After all scheduled business has been completed and as time allows, the meeting will also include up to one hour of Open Public Comment.

There will be no opportunity for additional public comment for the record at the September 14 business meeting on items for which a hearing was completed on August 10 or a previous date. Commission consideration on September 14 of items for which the public hearing is closed may result in approval of the item (by docket or resolution) as proposed, approval with changes, denial, or deferral. When the Commissioners defer an action, they may announce an additional period for written comment on the item, with or without an additional hearing date, or they may take additional time to consider the input they have already received without requesting further public input. Any deferred items will be considered for action at a public meeting of the Commission on a future date.

Advance Sign-Up for Oral Comment. Individuals who wish to comment on the record during the public hearing on August 10 or to address the Commissioners informally during the Open Public Comment portion of the meeting on either August 10 or September 14 as time allows, are asked to sign up in advance by contacting Ms. Paula Schmitt of the Commission staff, at paula.schmitt@drbc.nj.gov.
