Idyllwild Town Crier points out possible Brown Act violations in Water District board meeting

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.
