General Public Comment

The Brown Act requires that every agenda include an opportunity for members of the public to directly address the committee on any item of interest to the public that is within the board’s jurisdiction.1

To ensure compliance with the law, the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (DONE) will not publish an agenda that doesn’t include this item.

Example agenda item:

  1. General Public Comment on Non-Agenda Items
  1. Cal. Gov. Code §54954.3
