Please look here for all board agendas and materials packets. The most recent fiscal quarter's board meetings are shown on the first page (please scroll back through prior quarters to find any past meetings that you are interested in): 


PLEASE NOTE: (1) as noted above, all public comments are limited to three minutes per speaker; (2) the board must use the publicly noticed agenda to guide its discussion; and (2) if the EBIA Board does not reach quorum for any scheduled meeting due to any unforeseen reasons the meeting will be cancelled and rescheduled. Thank you for your patience if this occurs!

The Brown Act mandates that agendas for regular meetings allow for two types of public comment periods. The first is a general audience comment period, which is the part of the meeting where the public can comment on any item of interest that is within the subject matter jurisdiction of the local agency. This general audience comment period may come at any time during a meeting (Section 54954.3). The second type of public comment period is the specific comment period pertaining to items on the agenda. The Brown Act requires the legislative body to allow these specific comment periods on agenda items to occur prior to or during the EBIA board's consideration of that item (Section 54954.3). Per EBIA's legal counsel, EBIA accomplishes both requirements by placing a general audience comment period at the beginning of the agenda where the public can comment on agenda and non-agenda items. Additionally EBIA provides a second public comment period at the end of the meeting agenda, to allow for any additional comment the public may wish to provide.
