Meetings are conducted in the Board of Supervisors Chambers located in the Butte County Administration Building:
25 County Center Drive, Suite 205
Oroville, CA 95965
Meetings are normally held the second and fourth Tuesday of the month and begin at 9:00 a.m., however, due to holidays and other schedule conflicts the Board may meet on alternate Tuesdays. See the current Board Meeting Calendar for meeting dates.
The agenda for every regular meeting of the Board is posted in front of the County Administration Building, at least 72 hours prior to each meeting, in accordance with the Brown Act (GC section 54950 et seq). Agendas are normally posted at the County location, and on this website, by 4:00 p.m. on the Thursday prior to the Tuesday meeting.
Copies of agendas and associated staff reports are also available in the Administrative Office for public review. Copies of materials can be provided to you for the cost of the copies.
The agenda is organized in the manner described below.
Consent Agenda items are considered to be routine and non-controversial items and are handled by one motion and vote of the Board. If a member of the public wishes to discuss a consent agenda item, he or she can fill out a public participation card requesting the item be discussed on the regular agenda. The cards are simply used to help the Chair identify individuals wishing to address the Board and are not required. The public is encouraged to consult with County staff for clarification and explanation of Consent Agenda items prior to the Board meeting.
Regular Agenda items are those items which require Board discussion. Regular Agenda items may be heard between Public Hearing and Timed Items.
Public Hearing and Timed Items : These items will not be called prior to the scheduled time shown on the agenda.
Occasionally the Board will conduct hearings and take action on matters within their other legislative capacities, e.g., the Butte County Public Facilities Finance Corporation. These items will be listed separately on the agenda.
Public Comment is the time members of the public audience may address the Board on a matter not listed on the agenda. The Board is prohibited by state law from taking action on any item not listed on the agenda.
The Board is authorized to meet in closed session in certain circumstances. These circumstances typically include matters involving County personnel, pending and potential litigation, and labor negotiations. The Brown Act requires a representative of the legislative body to orally announce Closed Session items to be discussed prior to adjourning to a Closed Session.
The policy of the Board of Supervisors, as well as a requirement of the The Ralph M. Brown Act, (California Government Code Section 54950-54962), allows members of the public the opportunity to comment on all matters before the Board. Public participation is limited to matters within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Board pursuant to Government Code Section 54954.3. Members of the public wishing to provide comment on an item, but who are unable to attend the meeting, are encouraged to send their comments in writing to:
Clerk of the Board
25 County Center Drive, Suite 200
Oroville, CA 95965
