Loveland council votes 5-4 to halt online and phone-in comments from the public

Loveland Reporter-Herald: Members of the public will no longer be able to call in during Loveland City Council meetings or submit comments online after a 5-4 vote to discontinue the COVID-era options for public participation.

Councilor John Fogle successfully moved to halt the practices, which were introduced last year after meetings were closed to the public to mitigate the spread of the virus.

Fully in-person meetings resumed on June 1, though the remote options for public comment were kept in place. A procedure for emailing comments was recently replaced with an online form.
