Brown Act Legislative Bodies

The Brown Act, officially known as the Ralph M. Brown Act (California Government Code sections 54950-54963), authored by Ralph M. Brown, an Assemblyman from Turlock, was enacted in 1953 by the California State Legislature in an effort to safeguard the public’s ability to obtain access to and participate in local government meetings and deliberations. The Brown Act governs open meetings and requires that meetings of local governmental bodies allow public access to meetings.


Every Agenda for all Regular meetings of the City Council and Agendas for the other Brown Act advisory commissions or committees provide an opportunity for members of the public to directly address the legislative body on any item under the subject matter jurisdiction of the body and any item on the Regular Agenda.

Special meetings are an exception to this requirement in that the public is allowed to comment only on those items already on the Special Agenda. If you would like to have an item placed on a City Council Agenda, please submit a completed and signed Request Form for Agenda Item to the  City Clerk at City Hall.
