At the Sept. 1 Beverly Hills City Council Study Session, a majority of the Council agreed to begin recording City Council Liaison and some Ad Hoc Committee meetings. Currently, the City only records Regular Meetings and Study Sessions. The Council grappled with the issue of recording Ad Hoc meetings that discussed sensitive information. They also debated the value of live broadcasts. But ultimately, all members of the Council voiced some degree of support for the proposition.
Each year, the Mayor picks Councilmembers to serve as liaisons to commissions or staff. The two Council liaisons on a commission can only provide input and feedback on projects, commission agendas, and other topics. Only a majority of Councilmembers can give direction. Similar to City Council and Commission meetings, liaison meetings are open to the public and have their agendas and supporting materials published ahead of time. Some committees meet regularly, but most take place as only needed.
