Weekly meetings of the county Board of Supervisors are likely a thing of the past as the board will discuss alternative meeting schedules.
The board meets at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in the County Administration Center, 940 W. Main St., El Centro.
Under a proposal introduced at a board workshop last month, the board was told that weekly meetings are inefficient for county staff. As such, the board will be presented with three alternatives, each of which would have the board meeting every two weeks. The only remaining question would be to decide at what time of day to meet.
The choices are to meet at 8:30 a.m. or at 1:30 p.m., every other Tuesday.
In addition to the board meeting change, the supervisors would establish what's called a committee of the whole, which would meet the Monday before each board meeting, either at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m. Action on issues discussed at committee meetings would not be formally acted upon until two weeks later at a regular board meeting, not at the next day's board meeting.
