The Monterey County Disaster Council is a standing committee subject to The Ralph M. Brown Act, located at California Government Code 54950 et seq., of the California State Legislature; Monterey County OES encourages the public to exercise their right to participate in the Monterey County Disaster Council meetings. Individuals, lobbyists, and members of the news media possess the right to attend, record, broadcast, and participate in public meetings. The public’s participation is further enhanced by the Brown Act’s requirement that a meaningful agenda be posted in advance of meetings, by limiting discussion and action to matters listed on the agenda, and by requiring that meeting materials be made available.

Please note: legislative bodies may, however, adopt reasonable regulations on public testimony and the conduct of public meetings, including measures to address disruptive conduct and irrelevant speech.

MEETINGS

The Disaster Council meetings are held bi-annually on the third Wednesday of April and October from 12:00- 2:00pm; For more information on the next Monterey County Disaster Council, please visit the OES Calendar
