Three of the main governing bodies in Del Norte County will meet on the same day at nearly the same time today.

The Del Norte County Board of Supervisors and the Crescent City Council will discuss the future of the Solid Waste Management Authority at a joint meeting.

Council members and supervisors will also discuss a proposed "social host" ordinance that targets homeowners who allow underage drinking to occur on their property, and a memorandum of understanding between the city and county for sharing resources.

According to the county's staff report, the joint meeting will focus on a request of the Solid Waste Management Authority Board to conduct an independent analysis of privatization of the authority.

The joint meeting will take place at 5 p.m. at the Flynn Center at 981 H St. An agenda is available at Meetings are streamed live at

Meanwhile the Del Norte County Unified School District Board will focus on Gov. Jerry Brown's revised budget proposal when it convenes today instead of its usuual Thursday meeting day.

The School Board will also address the future of Bess Maxwell Elementary School. After nearly 16 people spoke out against an advisory committee's recommendation to close the school, district officials are recommending keeping it open, according to a staff report.

The School Board meets at 4:30 p.m. at the Del Norte County Unified School District administration building, 301 W. Washington Blvd. An agenda is available at
