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.
