Minutes and Resumes Explained

The Resume document is available on this website until the Minutes are approved.


The "Resume" document is a summary report which shows recommendations presented to the Board of County Commissioners ( BoCC ) on the agenda and various Reports; i.e., Clerk's Report, Growth Management Report, County Administrator's Report, County Attorney's Report, etc..., in the order presented on the agenda cover sheet, with the BoCC's action noted below each recommendation; e.g. "Approved 5-0 or Approved 4-1, with Commissioner ? voting "no"". The Resume document does not include motions and votes, no speakers are listed, and the document is finalized and distributed the first working day following the Board Meeting.


The "Minutes" document is a report which includes titles for, and records the motions and votes depicting the BoCC's final action on, all recommendations presented for BoCC action; e.g., "Motion made by Commissioner ?, seconded by Commissioner ?, and carried unanimously, approving..." The Minutes document presents each item in the order in which it was addressed by the BoCC and lists any public speakers under the corresponding item(s). The final Minutes document is presented for BoCC approval at the next regularly scheduled Meeting and is available for public access via the Clerk's website after BoCC approval.
