– Inyo County press release
Independence – Inyo County’s County Counsel, Marge Kemp Williams, hereby announces she received an Advice Opinion from the state’s Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) an Advice
Opinion in which Commission staff concluded the Board of Supervisors’ decisions required to be made as part of the Board’s consideration of the Adventure Trails project “will not have a reasonably foreseeable material financial effect on any of the supervisors’ interests.”
According to Kemp-Williams, “The FPPC’s ruling clears the way for each member of the Board of Supervisors to participate in the decision making process regarding the Adventure Trails project, if
he so chooses.”
Last month, the County rescheduled the Public Hearing for the Adventure Trails project to allow time for the FPPC to provide the County with guidance about the ability of all five members of the
Board of Supervisors to participate in the decision making process.
The Public Hearing for the Adventure Trails project is now scheduled for Thursday, January 22, 2015, at 10 a.m. in Independence at the Independence Legion Hall.
The meeting location was moved from the Board of Supervisors Chambers to the Legion Hall to accommodate what is expected to be
an overflow crowd.
