Brown Act Reminder: The League of California Cities board of directors has a policy complying with the spirit
       of open meeting laws. Generally, off-agenda items may be taken up only if:
1.      Two-thirds of those present find a need for immediate action exists and the need to take action came to
       the attention of the board after the agenda was prepared (Note: If fewer than two-thirds of board
       members are present, taking up an off-agenda item requires a unanimous vote); or
2.     A majority of the board finds an emergency (for example, work stoppage or disaster) exists.

                         Our mission is to restore and protect local control for cities
               through education and advocacy to enhance the quality of life for all Californians.
