Public Meeting Laws
Public bodies are responsible for complying with Oregon Public Meeting Laws, being aware of the terms of its members, and keeping the County Court informed of committee activities and vacancies by submitting meeting minutes to the County Court office. Committee chairs, their designees, or a department staff member may make recommendations to the County Court regarding committee appointments.
