Post to the Early Notification System

The Early Notification System (ENS) exists so the city can distribute information about the City Council as well as other commissions, committees, departments, and boards, including neighborhood council committees. Interested members of the public can sign up to receive, via email, agendas for city meetings.

It is a valuable tool for the public to stay aware of what is happening in city government.

ENS was prescribed in the same part of the City Charter that created Neighborhood Councils.1 It was further defined in the Plan for Neighborhood Councils.2

Finally, BONC policy requires all neighborhood council committees submit a copy of all agendas to to be posted through ENS.3

To submit your committee agenda to be posted to ENS, email it as a PDF file to ncsupport@lacity.org with the date and title of the meeting as the email subject.
