Some residents questioned whether the council violated the state's open meeting law by not posting the agenda 72 hours before the meeting was to be held. The Brown Act requires that a hard copy of the agenda be available for viewing. The city is not required to post it on its website, said Terry Francke, general counsel of the nonprofit Californians Aware and an open-government advocate.
Carrillo said Thursday that the agenda was posted in three spots between 6:45 p.m. and 7:20 Monday. However, it does not appear to have been posted on the city's website until late Wednesday night.
