§ 647.2. Notice and Agenda Requirements.
(a) Purpose. Government Code Section 11125 requires state agencies to provide notice at least one week in advance of any meeting to any person who requests such notice in writing except that emergency meetings may be held with less than one week's notice when such meetings are necessary to discuss unforeseen emergency conditions as defined by published rule of the agency. The purpose of this section is to establish procedures for compliance with Government Code Section 11125 by the State Board and the Regional Boards.
(b) Contents of Meeting Notice. The notice for all meetings of the State Board and Regional Boards shall specify the date, time and location of the meeting and include an agenda listing all items to be considered. The agenda shall include a description of each item, including any proposed action to be taken.
(c) Time of Notice. Notice shall be given at least one week in advance of the meeting. When the notice is mailed, it shall be placed in the mail at least eight days in advance of the meeting.
(d) Emergency Conditions. The provisions of this section do not apply when an item must be considered or a meeting held because of unforeseen emergency conditions. Unforeseen emergency conditions exist when there have been unexpected circumstances requiring immediate action by the State Board or Regional Boards to regulate the water resources of the state so as to protect the public health, welfare, or safety. It is not necessary that the emergency conditions be such that they could not have been anticipated or prepared for but only that in the normal course of events they would seldom be expected. Notice of such consideration or meeting shall be given by mail, telephone, telegram, or other available means to persons known to be interested in the matter.
(e) Distribution. Notice shall be given to all persons directly affected by proceedings on the agenda and to all persons who request in writing such notice. Notice shall be given to any person known to be interested in proceedings on the agenda.
(f) Uncontested Items Calendar. The agenda may include an item designated “the uncontested items calendar.”
(1) The uncontested items calendar shall include only those matters for which there appears to be no controversy.
(2) At the request of any Board member or other interested person, any matter shall be removed from the uncontested items calendar and may be considered at the same meeting as a separate item of business.
(3) Late revisions and/or corrections to items on the uncontested items calendar shall be specified for inclusion prior to considering a vote on the uncontested items calendar. If such revisions constitute a significant change in the proposed action on any item, action shall be deferred until a later meeting of the Board.
(4) After an opportunity for requests to remove any matters from the uncontested items calendar has been given, a vote shall be taken on the uncontested items calendar. Upon a vote to approve the uncontested items calendar, each matter on the uncontested items calendar shall be approved and shall have the same force and effect as it would have if approved as a separate agenda item.
