The City Council meeting of Tuesday, May 29 showed on the agenda that the citizen complaint to the city attorney’s office in regard to violation of the Brown Act would be dealt with during the closed session. The statement read by the city attorney’s office at the meeting follows;
“The City Council met in closed session regarding item CS-3, which concerned a May 14th letter from Peter Jacobs, et al., submitted to the City pursuant to Government Code Section 54960.1. The letter demanded the City Council cure or correct its April 30th actions related to the election of the Mayor and Vice Mayor, which complainants allege were taken in violation of the Brown Act.
The City Council has determined that no Brown Act violations occurred; therefore, there is no need to cure or correct its actions. The Council has directed me, the City Attorney, to prepare a written response to Mr. Jacobs, et al., in accordance with such determination.”
