Protect Your Say in Your Community: Sign the Petition
The Geauga Park Board has eliminated public comments and questions from the public board meetings. The tax paying citizens of Geauga County are being ignored and disenfranchised by the public boards who refuse to answer or even hear questions about the use of public land and public funds. Please sign the petition asking Ohio legislators to amend the current law to require public comment time at public meetings and thoughtful responses from public boards.
