Public Hearings are held when a change is being made to Tribal Law. Sometimes it's an amendment to the law and sometimes it's a brand new law. ALL General Council members are invited and encouraged to attend these meetings. Members' opinion is very important to the Tribal Council. The Council needs all perspectives in order to make sure proposed law is appropriate for the PGST community. Although no formal action is taken during Public Hearings, they are conducted much like General Council meetings and provide a great opportunity for community input.
Public Hearing Notices are posted several weeks ahead of time in the Community Memo
, on tribal buildings and are added to the Community Calendar
as they are scheduled by the Tribal Council.
Full copies of proposed changes are available from the front desk or in the registered member section of the website under the "publications
" link under "public hearings
