Supes asked to be honest with the public
|Westwood resident Eileen Spencer, a representative of a community bulletin board website, filed a complaint Tuesday, May 14 alleging the Lassen County Board of Supervisors violated the Brown Act, California’s Open Meeting Law, because the board said it was going to discuss the Dyer Mountain litigation in closed session, but her group believed the board actually was going to discuss the delinquent taxes owed by the proposed four-season resort’s developer. “This board must stop abusing the Brown Act with these types of deceptions,” Spencer said. “This is the public’s business.” County officials told Spencer despite her allegation, the board would be discussing the item it agendized during the closed session. The board had originally planned to discuss the item at its April 23 meeting, but that discussion was abandoned when the board discovered the agenda listed the wrong court case.
