Board & Committee Meeting Calendar
All county board and committee meetings are normally held on Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m. in County Board Room A-2400 in the Government Center, unless otherwise noted. Board and committee meetings are video-streamed live on the web, broadcast live on Metropolitan Cable Network Channel 6, and re-broadcast on Channel 6 on Fridays at 8 p.m.
The agenda for the next board meeting is published as soon as possible prior to the meeting and linked from Agendas and Minutes. You may also sign up to receive county board agenda email notices.
Prior to formal action by the board, items are usually discussed in committee.
There are six standing committees of the board:
The commissioners handle the business of the committees in succession, and the order in which the committees meet varies.
An "open forum" time is provided during the Libraries, Technology and General Government Committee meetings for citizens to address the commissioners on issues that are not agenda items.
Commissioners meet frequently with the county administrator and staff to informally discuss current issues. These board briefings are generally scheduled several Thursdays of each month at 9:30 a.m. in County Board Room A-2400 in the Government Center. Briefing dates and agendas are available by contacting board chair Commissioner Mike Opat at 612-348-7881.
Prior to voting on certain issues, the board may hold public hearings as required by statute, or as an additional venue for public input. Scheduled public hearings are listed on Agendas and Minutes.
From time-to-time the board may call either a special meeting or an emergency meeting. Notice of such meetings are posted on Agendas and Minutes, in addition to other sources as required by state law.
