Public Engagement Accommodations for Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee Meetings
In light of the current Public Health Emergency, the Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee has decided to hold its meetings by teleconference. Governor Newsom recently issued an order relaxing some of the Brown Act’s requirements for teleconferencing but emphasized that government agencies must still provide the public with a meaningful way to participate in public meetings.
HCSD values the health and safety of our community, elected officials, and staff. We also very much value the public’s need and right to meaningfully participate and comment in public proceedings. HCSD has every intention of providing a physical location for members of the public to view and participate in the public Committee meetings; however, in light of the March 31st Shelter in Place order for San Mateo County and the serious health risks that members of the public could face by gathering together in one room, HCSD will instead provide the public with a link to join via Zoom, until the Shelter in Place is lifted.
To that end, below please find the Zoom link for the next regularly scheduled Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee meeting, which will allow you to participate in the open session portion of the meeting. The virtual meeting will be recorded, the video of which will be posted within 24 hours of the meeting’s conclusion.
Please review the information below regarding the different ways you can access the agenda, attend the virtual meeting, participate and provide comment, and locate the minutes and video of the meeting once it concludes.
