You can watch the full six-hour board meeting below:
The Riverside County Board of Supervisors voted to table the vote on a proposed two-month plan to lift all public health regulations in the county.
The board voted 3-2 to reconvene on Oct. 6 to once again vote on District 5 Supervisor Jeff Hewitt’s three-phase plan to reopen the county’s businesses after Supervisors Kevin Jeffries and Karen Spiegel want to make several minor amendments to the proposal.
Supervisors Manuel Perez & Chuck Washington voted against the proposal altogether.
The vote came after several hours of public comment from residents, many of whom were in-person advocating for reopening and completely dropping the public health orders.
County CEO George Johnson said at the meeting over $700 million in state funding could potentially be at-risk if board voted to defy the state’s orders and pass Hewitt’s reopening proposal.
