The Mountain View City Council meeting slated for tonight has been postponed due to new California rules that require a majority of council members to be present in person.
The meeting was scheduled for Tuesday, March 28 at 5 p.m. At first it was rescheduled for Thursday, April 6 at 5 p.m., but then rescheduled a second time for Monday, April 3 at 6 p.m.
"This is due to the new Brown Act meeting rules that require a quorum of the governing body to be in person if there are also members attending the meeting remotely," the city said in a statement. "At least four council members need to be in attendance in person for a quorum of the Mountain View City Council," which has seven total members.
Three council members are currently out of town attending a conference and had planned to attend the meeting remotely. A fourth council member is not able to attend in person due to illness, meaning the council would not have a quorum of at least four in-person council members.
The Brown Act is a California law that guarantees the public's right to attend and participate in local legislative body meetings.
