(Placerville, CA) – Ever wonder how the Board of Supervisors’ meeting agenda is developed? For the answer to this question and more, join El Dorado County Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, Jim Mitrisin, for an informative presentation: the Life-Cycle of an Agenda item. The presentation will be held on Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 6:00pm at the El Dorado County Government Center in Placerville. Space for the presentation is limited, so reservations are requested no later than September 12, 2014.
“Some might consider this ‘inside’ information, but the public has shown an increased interest in the process and policies of their local government,” said Mitrisin. “I believe this program will be beneficial in helping the public understand exactly how Board of Supervisors meeting agendas are created.”
Topics to be discussed will include Brown Act requirements; agenda development, from agenda item inception to conclusion; and public comment procedures. Mitrisin will also explain how and where to access videos and minutes real-time or after the conclusion of a Board of Supervisors meeting. The presentation is expected to last an hour and a half to two hours, including time for questions and answers.
The El Dorado County Government Center (Building A) is located at 330 Fair Lane in Placerville. The specific room to be used will be determined based on the number of interested parties and signs will be posted accordingly. Reservations can be made by phone at (530) 621-5592 or e-mail at email@example.com. Please include the total number expected in your party to ensure sufficient seating.
