Governing Board Meeting Information
The first board meeting of each month has been designated to focus on presentations, recognitions, a consent agenda, and a call to the audience. Generally, no board action will be taken on presentation items at these meetings, but there may be exceptions. This meeting is intended to be informative in nature, providing background to the board prior to taking action.
The second meeting of each month has been designated to focus on the business of the district, to include action items related to information previously presented, a consent agenda and a call to the audience.
Calls to the Audience
