BOARD TO HOLD OPEN WORKING GROUP MEETING ON DEC. 17



HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners will hold its final public working group meeting of 2012 on Monday, Dec. 17. The meeting, which will begin at 8 a.m., will be held in the auditorium of the Game Commission’s Harrisburg headquarters, 2001 Elmerton Avenue, just off the Progress Avenue exit of Interstate 81.



The working group meeting will be webcast through the agency’s website (www.pgc.state.pa.us) beginning at 8 a.m.



“Since opening our Working Group meetings to the public, the Board has received an enormous amount of positive feedback from hunters around the state,” said Game Commissioner Ralph Martone, Board President. “Through the Working Group meetings and the rebroadcast on the Game Commission website, hunters are learning more about the issues surrounding Board decisions. Observers are often amazed at the depth of information provided to the Board during the briefing by staff, as well as the exchange of questions and answers between Commissioners and staff.”



Martone encouraged the public to use the time between the working group meeting on Dec. 17 and the Board’s first quarterly meeting of 2013, which will be held on Jan. 27-29, to express their opinions.



Public comment periods are scheduled at each of the Board’s quarterly meetings, during which the Board votes on proposed regulations and other action items. The Board also accepts public comments through e-mail and letters.

These working meetings are live streamed on the net. They are also taped and available for viewing later off the GC site via a third party system.

Huge amounts of behind the scenes information and discussion on lots of issues between the staff and the BOC. Very informal setting and a lot of give and take.

This will be the working meeting that sets the agenda for the January and April meetings even though there will be another working meeting in late March or early April for the April meeting.
