March 24 Board of Supervisors meeting

Due to the restrictions on gatherings in response to COVID-19, in-person participation at the County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday, April 21 will not be allowed. The public can submit eComments or speak via teleconference. Residents can watch the meetings live online or on television.

Wednesday’s session has been cancelled and those agenda items will be discussed during the Tuesday meeting.

The restrictions were first put in place following the governor’s March 19 directive for everyone in the State of California to stay home. This will be the third time the County Board meeting has had restrictions in place.

Watch Online: There may be a 45-second or more delay when viewing the broadcast online, depending on the service and your internet connection.

Watch on TV: The meeting will also be broadcast live on:

  • Cox channel 24 or 19
  • Spectrum channel 24 or 85
  • Currently, not available on AT&T U-Verse channel 99

A call-in line is also available to listen to the live Board meeting while it is in session at (619) 531-4716. Additional information is posted on the Clerk of the Board’s website.

Typically, members of the public can use the eComment service to submit comments on agenda and non-agenda items until the beginning of the meeting. At this time, eComments can also be submitted during the meeting.

Those who want to participate in the meeting and speak via teleconference must fill out the online Board of Supervisors tele-comments form and submit it by 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday. After submitting the form, you’ll get instructions on how to call in to the meeting to provide your comments.

Large groups wishing to comment on a common item are encouraged to submit comments in writing or to identify one spokesperson to join the teleconference on behalf of the group.

Additionally, Board members may be attending the meeting via teleconference or phone conference and will conduct business as usual.

For more information, visit the Clerk of the Board website or call 619-531-5434.
