The Board normally holds its regular meetings on Tuesdays, beginning at 8:30 AM. A consent calendar involving routine financial and administrative actions, usually approved by a single majority vote, is normally heard first. A regular calendar with more significant items of special interest follows the consent calendar.
The afternoon calendar begins at 2:00 PM with Public Comment on Issues not on the Agenda where the public can address the Board on any issue that concerns them. That is followed by public hearings related to a variety of issues such as leases, land use decisions, fees, and vacations of roads.
The Board of Supervisors meets in the Board of Supervisors Chambers at 575 Administration Drive, Room 102A, Santa Rosa, California. The phone number is (707) 565-2241 and the fax number is (707) 565-3778.
Any member of the public may address the Board on a matter on the agenda, within time limits at the discretion of the Chair or the Board. Copies of the agenda are available at the Office of the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors (Room 100A), and also at Public Libraries, Chambers of Commerce, and City Halls throughout the County.
Security screening is conducted for all individuals attending Board meetings. Individuals planning to participate in Board meetings are advised to allow extra time to complete the screening process. The full policy can be found at http://sonomacounty.ca.gov/Board-of-Supervisors/
