**We ask that you mute your phone if possible. To request to speak when allowed on the agenda, participants must click “Raise Hand” if connected by smartphone or computer, or press *9 if connected by telephone. All participants will be muted by the meeting host when not actually speaking. For additional information regarding How to Participate in Meeting Discussions, please visit Story County’s website at: https://www.storycountyiowa.gov/92/Board-of-Supervisors

Audio recordings of all Board meetings will be posted on our website www.storycountyiowa.gov shortly after the meeting is concluded. You may access these recordings at any time by clicking on the Meetings and Agendas button on the home page.

How to Participate in Meeting Discussions
If you would like to watch a meeting as it happens and participate in the discussion, you can do so via Zoom (www.zoom.us). Zoom is a videoconferencing platform that works across different internet-enabled devices and standard telephones. Meetings that are being held via Zoom will have information at the top of the agenda regarding how to find the meeting in Zoom. Each meeting is assigned a meeting ID (sometimes called a “webinar ID”) that you will need to use to access the meeting. 

Zoom video conferencing
 – You can access the meeting by either clicking the link in the agenda, or by opening the Zoom application and entering the meeting ID number found on the agenda. 
  • Meeting participants will be able to watch and hear the meeting as it takes place. For portions of the meeting where public input is accepted, participants interested in speaking can press the button called “Raise Hand.” This will notify the staff that you wish to speak. When it is your turn, staff will announce your name and notify you it is your turn to speak.
  • You will need to press the “unmute” button and provide your comments. Once you are complete, you will be muted again by the staff.
Zoom phone conferencing – As an alternative to video conferencing, participants may call in to a phone conference using their touch-tone phone. Call-in telephone numbers are provided at the top of each meeting agenda (you can select from any of the phone numbers.) Unless otherwise indicated, the number is a long-distance phone number; charges may apply depending on your telephone provider. Once you have dialed the telephone number provided, you will be prompted to enter the Meeting ID number (found on the agenda).
  • During the meeting, you will be able to hear the discussion live, but will not be able to see any content (e.g., maps, text, or other visual materials) that may be displayed for video conference users. For portions of the meeting where public input is accepted, participants interested in speaking can press *9 on their phone.” This will notify the staff that you wish to speak. When it is your turn, staff will announce the last four digits of your phone number and notify you it is your turn to speak. You will hear an automated announcement that your line has been unmuted, then you can begin your comments. Once you are complete, you will be muted again by the staff.
