COVID Meeting Procedures

Town Council Meetings During COVID-19

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, there are some changes in the way Holly Springs Town Council meetings are being conducted and the way the Town Council is receiving input from the public.

January 2021 Meetings

Because of the increase of COVID community spread in our area, in-person public attendance will not be allowed for Holly Springs Town Council business and workshop meetings during the month of January. 

Live Streaming
Meetings are being live streamed on the town web page, and may be watched in real time here. Videos of the live stream are uploaded to the web page a day or two after the meeting and can be found here.

Public Comment
During this period public comment is being received in writing. Comments may be emailed to the Town Clerk at linda.mckinney@hollyspringsnc.us or dropped in the payment box in the parking lot of Town Hall, with “Public Comment” written on the envelope.  We request that comments be delivered by 5:00 p.m. on the Monday before a meeting in order for them to be delivered to the Town Council prior to the meeting. A summary of the comments will be read by the clerk during the meeting and the verbatim comments will be included with the minutes.

Public Hearings
Testimony for public hearings is not being received in-person during this time. If you have testimony to give in a public hearing, please contact the Town Clerk for instructions.  Written testimony for a quasi-judicial hearing will need to be by sworn affidavit, but a written statement may be sufficient for a legislative public hearing. The clerk can assist you with this information.
