  • Yep. I’m eliminated from participating or attending because
    I can only participate in-person…When will city hall be
    Open again so taxpayers can participate in-person again?
    Can they have a virtual or townhall telephone meeting
    Meeting about that? The only way I can participate is
    Here in the comment section of Alachua Chronicle.
    I don’t subscribe to the Gainesville Sun , but I hear they suspended their comments section. Government in the
    Sunshine is being eclipsed.

    • Neighbors with LAND LINES are encouraged to register.
      I don’t have a landline, but if I did, I’m sure I would hear
      A big “click” or buzzing sound when it was my turn.
