Steering Committee Meeting

May 8, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Steering Committee is scheduled to meet Monday, May 8th, 2023  at 12 noon in person at the SBCCOG Office located at 2355 Crenshaw Blvd., Suite 125, Torrance, CA 90501, and virtually via Zoom and at 2415 Rockefeller Lane Unit A, Redondo Beach, CA 90278.

SBCCOG Board Members: pursuant to the end of the State’s COVID-19 emergency declaration, your attendance is required to be in-person or follow the provisions of AB 2449 (accessible HERE). Provisions of this bill permit members of a legislative body of a local agency to participate remotely and not identify their location under certain narrow conditions including:

• At least a quorum of the members are present in person from a singular public location and the member who seeks to participate remotely must announce if any person over 18 years old is present;
• The legislative body provides two-way audio-visual platform or two-way telephonic services with live webcasting of meeting; and
• The agenda notifies the public of the ways to access the meeting and offer public comment via a call-in or internet-based service option, and in person.
Once there is no declared state of emergency (or when AB 361 no longer applies), AB 2449 allows for board members to meet without identifying each teleconference location in the notice and agenda of the meeting, and without making each teleconference location accessible to the public under certain circumstances, but only if there is “just cause” or “emergency circumstances” justifying the remote appearance. A member may not participate remotely for “just cause” for more than two meetings per year, and may not participate remotely for any reason for more than three consecutive months or 20% of meetings per year. The SBCCOG and each member will need to track and monitor their use of this provision to ensure compliance with the law.

We are asking in-person attendees to bring your laptop, tablet or a printed copy of the agenda as we will only have two courtesy copies available.

To address the SBCCOG Steering Committee on any agenda item or a matter within the Steering Committee’s purview, please provide written comments by 11:00 am, May 8, 2023 via email to [email protected] All written comments submitted will become part of the official record.
