RENO, Nev. (AP) — The Reno City Council will no longer allow live public comment during virtual city council meetings after five people used the forum to make vulgar or racist comments or bomb threats during a June meeting.

City spokesman Jon Humbert told the Reno Gazette Journal that members of the public will now only be allowed to submit emails, an online form or leave voicemails with their comments.

The comments will not be read or played during the meeting but the city clerk will make them part of the meeting's official record, generally after the meeting has ended.

The change comes after a June 19 council meeting conducted via online video conference in which two men separately used a racial slur, a man threatened that he planted bombs in council chambers, another man said he planted bombs around the city and another man giggled while describing a vulgar act he said happened in a store.

The men all appeared to have filled out a public comment form and were first called on by name to deliver their remarks.
