On March 17, 2020, the Governor issued Executive Order N-29-20 suspending certain provisions of the Ralph M. Brown Act in order to allow for local legislative bodies to conduct their meetings completely telephonically or by other electronic means. This suspension was extended by the Governor on June 11, 2021 by issuance of Executive Order N-08-21 which continues to allow for complete virtual City Council meetings. The purpose of these orders was to provide the safest environment for Council Members, staff and the public while allowing for public participation.
