Official Meeting and Legislative Information Center


Welcome to the County of Monterey’s Official Meeting and Legislative Information Center. This site provides quick and easy access to our meeting information and legislative process. It also houses archival records from 2009 to present. Links to historical records are available on the Historical Records tab.

For questions about legislation or this website, please contact the Clerk of the Board at cob@co.monterey.ca.us. The Clerk of the Board is the keeper of public trust, facilitating access to information through technology, transparency, and excellent customer service.

Search Agenda Items

Search legislative items, such as ordinances, resolutions, claims, board reports, and board orders. You can search for items in upcoming or past meetings. You can search by the file number, by the agenda date, or for words within the title of the item.

Calendar

Learn about upcoming and past meetings for the official meeting bodies, including the Board of Supervisors. Some meeting bodies provide online agendas and agenda packets before the meeting. Please note agenda packets can be large as they contain supplemental attachments for each agenda item.

To view a live broadcast of an in-progress meeting, you can click on the “In Progress” link in the Video column for that meeting. NOT all Board and Commission meetings are video or audio recorded.

Please note that the majority of the Boards and Commissions consist of community volunteers who meet on an as-needed basis. While the County encourages the members to provide this public access, regularly posted agendas and minutes may not always be available.

Board of Supervisors

See a filtered view of the calendar, with only information about recent Board of Supervisors meetings. You can filter for a different meeting body as well.

Video Archive

Browse our video or audio meetings archive available online. You may find some records here that are not available on our Calendar page as we originally maintained these records separately.
