Serving all of El Dorado County

Due to the current and continuing state of emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the El Dorado CoC has made the determination that meeting in person would present imminent risk to the health or safety of attendees and has made the decision to continue virtual meetings until further notice.

Public notice of the meeting and the meeting agenda will be provided in advance via our listserv and posted on edokcoc.org. Meetings can be accessed by internet or phone. Closed captioning will be provided during the meeting. Reasonable time will be allowed for public comment directly to the board after each agenda item. If you have trouble accessing the meeting, the meeting documents or need other accommodation to participate in the meeting, please email edokboard@gmail.com.
