Agenda Item #9. Appointment of Alternate Representative to the San Joaquin Valley Special City Selection Committee.
AGENDA ITEM: Appointment of Alternate Representative to the San Joaquin Valley Special City Selection Committee.
MEETING DATE: May 5, 2015
PREPARED BY: Betty Cota, Executive Assistant/Deputy City Clerk
REVIEWED BY: Odi Ortiz, Interim City Manager
Staff recommends that the City Council appoint an alternate representative to the San Joaquin Valley Special City Selection Committee.
On September 30, 2008, then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed SB 1548 which created Section of the Health and Safety Code establishing a valley-wide Special City Selection Committee which is charged with making appointments of city representatives to the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District’s Governing Board.
The Special City Selection Committee consists of one member selected by a majority vote of the council of each city within the District. An alternate can be selected to attend if the primary member is unable to attend a meeting.
When the City Council reorganized after the November 2012 General Municipal Election, Mayor Rodrigo Espinoza was appointed to serve as the City’s representative on the Special City Selection Committee.
However, no alternate representative was appointed. The same action was taken after the November 2014 General Municipal Election when Mayor Espinoza was again appointed as the City’s representative on the Special City Selection Committee.
Although the Mayor can appoint a member of the Council to attend a meeting and vote in his absence, it would be more convenient to appoint a representative on a permanent basis to serve as an alternate.
Meetings are held periodically via video teleconference at the offices of the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District. The Northern Region office is located in Modesto.
No fiscal impact to the City.
