REQUESTED ACTION (S)

a)              Discussion and possible direction to staff regarding start times for the Board of Supervisor's regular meetings and closed sessions

BACKGROUND INFO

The current practice of holding closed session at 8:30 a.m. on Board days began in January 2012.  On 1/13/15 the Board of Supervisors adopted Ordinance No. 1998 amending Section 2.02.010 of the Tehama County Code, thereby changing the Board meeting time to 8:30 a.m. if there was closed session, and 10:00 a.m. if there was no closed session.

 

The current ordinance addresses only regular meetings, and does not preclude the Board from holding special meetings or emergency meetings in accordance with the Brown Act when appropriate.

 

If the Board votes to change the regular meeting times and closed session times, Section 2.02.010 of the Tehama County Code would have to be amended again by way of a new ordinance.
