The Board of Supervisors (Board) adopts its regular meeting calendar on an annual basis pursuant to county ordinance code Title 2, Chapter 2.03, Section 2.03.020 and adopted their regular meeting calendar for 2016 on December 15, 2015. The adopted meeting calendar included the Board meeting dates of November 8, 2016 and November 29, 2016 as regular meetings. Due to the renovation to portions of Building A of the main Government Center commencing in August 2016 through the beginning of 2017, the Board will hold their regular meetings in the Planning Commission Hearing Room in Building C.
