Boards & Commissions

BCC's are beginning to meet again. Until further notice and direction from the City Manager's Office, all meetings are to be conducted remotely through technological means (i.e., Microsoft Teams). Members of the public may listen in on the meetings from a computer, tablet or phone. To access the meeting, go to the agenda for the meeting you are interested in, and click on the meeting link. See screenshot below for example of login instructions if BCC is using Microsoft Teams:

Agendas, Legal Action Reports and Minutes are a major component of the Open Meeting Law and are posted online immediately after we receive them from BCC support staff and/or chairperson. Effective immediately, any revised or amended Agenda, Legal Action Report or Minutes will be posted online and the original document taken down. Please continue to send these documents a few days in advance if possible to give the public enough notice to review any agenda items. Contact the City Clerk's Office if you have any questions. Thank you for your cooperation.
