At this week’s L.A. County Board of Supervisors meeting, there was a seemingly innocuous motion on the agenda, easy to overlook as just a planning note for 2024.
In the motion, new board Chair Lindsey Horvath proposed canceling 13 meetings and thus sticking with the board’s most recent schedule of holding what the board calls “regular” meetings every other week.
The supervisors’ every-other-week schedule has led to longer meetings with packed agendas. Members of the public regularly leave before they can voice their opinions on their item of interest. Critics see this as overall less transparency for the already slow-turning wheels of government.
