Supervisor Bohn addresses Brown Act violation
HUMBOLDT COUNTY- Humboldt County announced Friday that it unintentionally violated the Brown Act. Monday we spoke with Chairperson Rex Bohn about the incident and what exactly went down at the meeting.
The Brown Act violation took place on March 20th. It was five days later when staff realized a majority of the Board of Supervisors had attended a meeting that was not publicly noticed. Those supervisors include: Estelle Fennell, Ryan Sundberg, and Mark Lovelace.
Supervisor Bohn told us the purpose of the gathering was to improve the community budget meetings. Since all five supervisors are involved in the process, county officials said it only made sense that all were invited to attend.
