Placer County Board of Supervisors Meeting
Despite the Placer County Board of Supervisor Chair’s unilateral pronouncement that he had “…determined that since this issue is being litigated it would serve no purpose to hold a hearing in the Board of Supervisors Chambers.” on May 8, 2018 the Placer County Republican Party and a broad cross-section of community leaders and concerned Placer County residents filled the Supervisors Chambers with an overflow crowd and addressed the Board during “Public Comment” and requested that the Board hold a public hearing on May 22, 2018 on this matter.

In television news coverage following that May 8, 2018 Board Meeting, Supervisor Holmes made multiple statements and issued, on behalf of the Board of Supervisors, the below statement which was published in its entirety on Fox40 News that evening.
We would like to thank Supervisors Kirk Uhler and Robert Weygandt for their support of our request to hold a public hearing on this issue. It is our intent to once again, appear at the May 22, 2018 Board of Supervisors Meeting, during “Public Comment” and attempt to impress upon the remaining three Supervisors, and most particularly, the Chair of the Board, Supervisor Jim Holmes, that the voters of Placer County want a public hearing on this matter before the Placer County Board of Supervisors.
HOW CAN A MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC GET AN ITEM ON THE BOARD’S AGENDA?
Following the Placer County Board of Supervisors hearing on May 8, 2018, a number of you were perplexed and concerned about what is the Placer County Board of Supervisors’ policy for setting an agenda item. Assuming that the Placer County Board of Supervisors encourages the public to attend and be part of how the Placer County Board of Supervisors makes its decisions, and recognizing that the Placer County Board of Supervisors wishes to conduct its business in an orderly, calm, productive and timely manner; one would presume that Placer County has produced and published a policy and procedure document for Board Meeting Agendas as so many other California County Boards of Supervisors have done. A component of such a document should include how members of the public can request that an item be agendized.
In the interest of providing you and residents of Placer County with a complete, accurate and fundamental understanding of why the Placer County Board of Supervisors, and more specifically, the Chair of the Placer County Board of Supervisors, has prevented and/or refused to hold at least a public hearing on this matter, let alone join those nine counties and thirty-four cities, and adopt a resolution opposing the California Sanctuary State law; the Placer County Republican Party has submitted a formal request for documents and records pursuant to the California Public Records Act, which you may read and review by clicking here.
We will keep you posted on what, if any, “records” the County produces in response to this request.
