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.
