The Governor’s recent Executive Orders N-25-20 and N-33-20 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic allow for a temporary change to the rules related to the Brown Act, including permitting local and state legislative bodies to hold meetings via conference calls while still meeting state transparency requirements, and direct individuals to stay at home except as needed to perform critical infrastructure functions.
In an effort to maintain consistency with ADA requirements and to accommodate people without access to a computer, members of the public can contact Stephanie Hansen at (831) 454-2580 or by email at Stephanie.Hansen@santacruzcounty.us with questions.
