General Information

How do I find the minutes of a county commission meeting?

Using myMinutes, meetings can be sorted by clicking on the name, date or duration columns. You may also search for specific keywords using the search box. Surround phrases with quotation marks to search for an exact phrase. To search for Documents, Resolutions, Amendments, or Terminates, use R-YYYY-#### (e.g. R-2007-0001). For meetings held prior to 2003, contact Board Services at (561) 355-2951.

Why do some meetings not have video minutes?

While many County Commission meetings are video recorded, many other committee meetings are not. However, the Clerk’s office audio records the meetings. Copies of audio recordings may be obtained by calling Board Services at (561) 355-2951.

What is the difference between preliminary and final minutes?

  • Preliminary minutes do not have the approval of the Board of County Commissioners and are subject to change.
  • Final minutes are posted after approval by the Board of County Commissioners and include specific motions, votes and public comment.

How does the public participate in County Commission meetings?

Rules and procedures for public meetings are posted on the County Commission Web site, which also lists the schedule of government meetings and workshops as well as upcoming and archived agendas.

Is backup documentation to the agenda items available?

Beginning with year 2017, executed resolutions and ordinances as well as some backup documentation will be available as PDFs and posted through myMinutes. Look for the attachment to the backup documentation at the end of each agenda item. For copies of executed consent agenda items, please contact Board Services at (561) 355-2951.
