Meetings of the city's legislative bodies, as defined by and subject to the Ralph M. Brown Act (Cal. Gov’t Code, Sections 54950 et seq.), shall commence no earlier than 5:00 p.m. on weekdays and 9:00 a.m. on weekends. Notwithstanding, this requirement shall not apply to purely advisory bodies, emergency meetings, meetings held in closed session, or meetings conducted outside the city's geographical boundaries. Moreover, by a four-fifths vote this requirement may be waived by an advance reasonable determination that extenuating circumstances surrounding the starting time of a particular meeting prevent the legislative body from fulfilling its duties and that such circumstances cannot otherwise be obviated by alternative or additional meeting dates. Actions taken at meetings held in violation of this section shall be deemed invalid.
