WRCOG Webinar: Navigating Virtual Governance and the Brown Act in a COVID-19 Climate

Western Riverside Council of Governments

As part of WRCOG's Future Forward webinar series, Best Best & Krieger Partner Michael Maurer joins City of Norco Mayor Pro Tem Kevin Bash and CALCOG Executive Director Bill Higgins to address these timely questions:

  • What have we learned about virtual public meetings under the Governor's Executive Order?
  • One of the underlying principles of the Brown Act is transparency in decision-making. Do virtual platforms do enough to assure that transparency?
  •  What would it look like to update the Brown Act with innovation developed during the COVID-19 pandemic?
  • If the Brown Act were to be amended, what other areas need to be addressed?
  • How do we assure access to meetings for those who do not have high quality broadband access?
