Agendas for Regular Board Meetings are posted on the Fridays before the meetings no later than 5 pm. Agendas for Committees are available at least 72 hours in advance of the meetings. Special Board Meetings may be scheduled occasionally and those agendas are posted at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting. Board and Committee meeting agendas are prepared, posted and distributed in accordance with provisions of the Ralph M. Brown Act.
Board Standing Committee Meetings
Board Standing Committee Meetings ("Committees") are held at least on a quarterly basis to study and advise the full Board regarding certain areas of concern. Committees consist of two board members and appropriate staff. Committee meetings may also be noticed as a Special Board Meeting to allow members of the Board who are not assigned to the committee to attend and participate. In order to preserve the function of the committee as advisory to the Board, members of the Board who are not assigned to the committee will not vote on committee matters. Actions taken within the purview of the committee are recommendations for full Board consideration and formal action at a future board meeting.
Minutes from Padre Dam Board meetings are posted after approval by the Board.
All inquiries regarding Board meetings, minutes, and related matters should be emailed to the Board Secretary or call 619-258-4614.
