The Open Government Commission consists of the members of the Berkeley Fair Campaign Practices Commission who serve as ex officio members of the Open Government Commission.  The Commission hears complaints, considers ways to informally resolve those complaints, and makes recommendations to the Council regarding such complaints.  The Commission may advise the Council concerning the annual report from staff, propose additional legislation or procedures that ensure the City’s compliance with open government laws, and advise the City Council as to any other action or policy to enhance open and effective government in Berkeley. The appointment and tenure of members of the Commission is governed by Chapter 2.12.
