Proposed Policies: Voice Your Opinion
The Tollway is seeking comment on proposed policies to ensure that the interests of those impacted by Tollway decisions have been considered. Public comment is sought through email, mail or in-person comments at committee meetings.
Policy Review and Comment Process
When a policy is introduced at one of the five Tollway committees – Executive, Finance Administration Operations, Strategic Planning, Customer Service or Audit – it will be posted on the Tollway's website and included in the committee agenda which is posted at least 48 hours prior to the meeting. Following introduction, members of the general public will have up to 21 days to comment on the policy using the comment form below or mailing comments to the Tollway. Individuals may also attend a committee meeting to offer in-person comments.
The comments will be posted on the Tollway's website within five business days of the conclusion of the public comment period. The Tollway Board of Directors will review the comments, post their responses online after five business days and then revise the proposed policy, as necessary. The revised policy will be included in the agenda for the next committee meeting and individuals may make additional comments at that meeting. A resolution to approve the policy will then be voted on by the Directors.
Note: This process is for committees that generally meet every other month.
