OLD BUSINESS:

1. Chief Larry Shaw gave a short presentation on the City of Brentwood Tobacco Ordinance. The Chief went over the ordinance discussing each article with the Youth Commission.

The Chief also mentioned that we could obtain the "Every 15 Minutes" video tape to show it at a future meeting. The commission liked that idea.

2. Staff presented to the commission The Brown Act and suggested that it would be to their advantage to be knowledgeable in the articles of the act.
