  Attend A Board Meeting

The Board of Supervisors welcomes you to its meetings which are regularly scheduled each Tuesday, and your interest is encouraged and appreciated.

The meetings are held in the Board of Supervisors' Chambers, located in the Monterey County Government Center, 168 West Alisal St, 1st Floor, Salinas, California.

As a courtesy to others, please turn off all cell phones and pagers prior to entering the Board Chambers.

If requested, the agenda shall be made available in appropriate alternative formats to persons with a disability, as required by Section 202 of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 USC Sec. 12132), and the federal rules and regulations adopted in implementation thereof.  Individuals requesting a disability-related modification or accommodation, including auxiliary aids or services, may contact the Clerk of the Board’s Office.  These requests may be made by a person with a disability who requires a modification or accommodation in order to participate in the public meeting.

The agenda is divided into two sections:

  • CONSENT CALENDAR: These matters include routine financial and administrative actions, appear in the supplemental sections, and are usually approved by a single majority vote.
  • REGULAR CALENDAR: These items include significant financial and administrative actions of special interest, appear in the white section, are classified by program areas and are usually approved by a single majority vote for each program. The regular calendar also includes " Scheduled Matters," which are noticed hearings, work sessions and public hearings.

TO ADDRESS THE BOARD ON A MATTER ON THE AGENDA: Please walk to the rostrum and wait for recognition from the Chair.  In order that all interested parties have an opportunity to speak, please be brief and limit your comments to the specific subject under discussion.  Time limitations shall be at the discretion of the Chair or Board, with equal time allocated to opposing sides of an issue insofar as possible.  Allocated time may not be reserved or granted to others, except as permitted by the Chair.  On matters for which a public hearing is required, please note that a court challenge to the Board's action  may be limited to only those issues raised at the public hearing or in correspondence delivered to the Board at or before the public hearing.

TO ADDRESS THE BOARD DURING "PUBLIC COMMENT":  Please complete a Speaker Request Form, available on the rostrum, and submit it to the Clerk of the Board before the commencement of that agenda item.   Public comments shall not pertain to matters on the agenda.
