​Board meetings

Meeting changes due to COVID-19

In response to the escalating concerns about public safety and the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the SMUD Board of Directors has canceled some of its regularly scheduled Board Committee meetings until further notice. Going forward, SMUD will conduct its monthly Board meetings remotely until further notice. 

Watch or listen online

All meetings will be streamed online. Past meetings can also be watched online. Agendas and other meetings materials are available below.

Making public comments

We value your comments and have created several options to ensure your voice is heard.

 

  1. General public comments or comments on a specific agenda item may be emailed to PublicComment@smud.org. Your comments will be provided to the Board and placed into the record of the Board or Committee Meeting if it's received within 2 hours after the meeting ends.
  2. While a meeting is in progress you can make comments on specific agenda items by emailing PublicComment@smud.org. Please limit your comment to 250 words or less. Your comments may be read into the record based upon factors like the length of the agenda, the number of comments received and whether the Board is in danger of losing a quorum. Comments will be provided to the Board and placed into the record of the Board or Committee Meeting if it's received within 2 hours after the meeting ends.
  3. Members of the public may register to provide verbal comments at an upcoming Board or Committee meeting by emailing a request to speak to PublicComment@smud.org. Please include the date of the meeting, name, and topic or agenda item the requestor wishes to speak on. The request may also be submitted while the meeting is in progress during the standard time for the agenda item or topic. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged by no later than 3:00 p.m. on the day of the meeting.
  4. Board and Committee meetings are currently conducted virtually via Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the link to the meeting will be included on the agenda for the associated meeting. Members of the public may log into the Zoom; however, functionality will be limited to listen- or view-only unless a request to speak has been submitted.
