Irvine City Council – more transparency

The Irvine City Council today will consider enhancing local government transparency by approving an ordinance to increase the number of days the agenda would be posted before a meeting.

City Public Affairs and Communications Director Craig Reem says the proposed ordinance referred to as the “Irvine Sunshine Ordinance,” calls for the posting to occur 12 days before a meeting. He says currently, staff makes available the agenda five days before a meeting and under the Brown Act, three days are required.

He says posting the agenda more days in advance of a meeting would give the public more time to review it to determine if they want to attend the Council meeting for possible participation.

Today’s meeting begins at four in the afternoon.
