The action taken was not in compliance with the Brown Act because the Act requires an opportunity for the public to address the legislative body for any item on the agenda. There was no showing that everything that could have been addressed had been addressed and accordingly Staff and Council indicated after the vote that there would probably be changes within the next month. That served as an indicator that everything had not been put on the table.
In the event it appears to you that the conduct of the City Council specified herein did not amount to the taking of action, I call your attention to Section 54952.6, which defines "action taken" for the purposes of the Act expansively, i.e. as "a collective decision made by a majority of the members of a legislative body, a collective commitment or promise by a majority of the members of a legislative body to make a positive or negative decision, or an actual vote by a majority of the members of a legislative body when sitting as a body or entity, upon a motion, proposal, resolution, order or ordinance."
