(Sponsor: County Counsel)
Please see Memo previously submitted by me on Oct 4, 2022 which relates to this issue
I oppose this expenditure. I urge you to consider the memo from MCA.
Myself and many other community members oppose the approval of this expenditure. I write asking the board to consider the memo submitted by MCA regarding this issue.
Please see the attached memo from MCA where we strenuously object to the adoption of the proposed expenditure of $25K for an outside counsel to investigate the Federal legality of our Local Equity Program on multiple grounds.
We urge you to oppose this agreement.
