Executive Summary:

Each year the Civil Grand Jury completes a Final Report on its investigations of potential issues in local government agencies. The 2019-20 Grand Jury Final Report was presented to the Presiding Judge of the Superior Court on July 29, 2020 and the full consolidated report was published on August 2, 2020. The Final Report included various findings and recommendations that require response from the Board of Supervisors within 90 days, or no later than October 31, 2020.

Once approved, the full set of responses to the 2019-20 Civil Grand Jury Report will be transmitted to the Presiding Judge of the Superior Court.
