Commission meetings are conducted in compliance with the Brown Act (California Government Code Section 54950 et sec.). The Brown Act is intended to promote transparency and public trust in government through procedures that ensure fair and equal public access, attendance and participation. Brown Act procedures also preserve the integrity of the decision-making process via open deliberations and actions of the Commission.
