Generally, two Regular Meetings are held on the first and third Thursdays of each month at 5:30 P.M., with the Public Forum portion of the Meeting at 4:30 P.M., prior to the start of the Regular Meeting.  Special Meetings may be scheduled to handle specific topics and two Public Hearings are held each year, typically in September, for consideration of adopting the County Budget.  The Meeting Schedule is published in the Pensacola News Journal every Saturday.  Board Meetings are typically televised “live” on ECTV Channel 98, via Cox Cable, Mediacom, and Brighthouse cable providers.
