Brown Act Violation
Idyllwild Water District board at last week’s special meeting. The agenda contained one agenda item, and only one: To decide the contractor to study IWD’s water rates.
Two Brown Act violations occurred at that meeting. (California’s open-meeting law is called the Ralph M. Brown Act.)
One, a member of the public was allowed to speak on other topics, including a water rights study and questioning the commitment of one of the directors to his position. Under Brown Act provisions, during a special meeting, no one — including the public or public officials — is allowed to speak on any topic except the ones on the agenda.
We currently have an email/members list of over 3,000 constituents in California and growing. If you would like to be a part of this email list to stay updated with the Brown Act Advocate efforts, please send me your info in the form below.
