JULY 6, 2004 SOUTH BAY CITIES COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENTS: RESOLUTION CONFIRMING APPOINTMENT OF DELEGATE AND ALTERNATE

TO: HONORABLE MAYOR & CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS

FROM: ADMIN. SERVICES DIRECTOR/CITY CLERK

DATE: JULY 6, 2004

SUBJECT: SOUTH BAY CITIES COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENTS: RESOLUTION CONFIRMING APPOINTMENT OF DELEGATE AND ALTERNATE

RECOMMENDATION

ADOPT RESOL. NO. 2004- A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF RANCHO PALOS VERDES CONFIRMING THE APPOINTMENT OF A DELEGATE, PRIMARY ALTERNATE AND SECONDARY ALTERNATES TO THE GOVERNING BOARD OF THE SOUTH BAY CITIES COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENTS (A JOINT POWERS AUTHORITY).

BACKGROUND

The City has been a member of the South Bay Cities Council of Governments since that organization was established in 1995. Each of the sixteen member cities has a delegate and alternate on the Governing Board of the SBCCOG. On December 16, 2003, Mayor Pro Tem Clark was appointed as the City’s delegate and Council Member Wolowicz was appointed alternate. A letter was sent to SBCCOG advising them of these appointments.

After the December 2003 appointments, it became apparent that because of conflicting calendars, it would best serve the City’s needs if representation to the SBCCOG was as follows: Delegate: Mayor Pro Tem Clark; Primary Alternate – Councilman Wolowicz; Secondary Alternates: Council Members Stern, Long and Mayor Gardiner. In the absence of the City’s delegate and primary alternate, all of the secondary alternate representatives would have voting authority.

The City is now in receipt of an e-mail from the SBCCOG advising its member cities that according to its By Laws, appointments to the Governing Board must be made by resolution of their legislative body. In response to this notification, and to reflect the addition of the secondary alternates, staff has prepared a resolution to meet the requirements of SBCCOG’s Bylaws.

CONCLUSION

Appointment to the SBCCOG Governing Board must be made by resolution and staff has prepared a resolution memorializing the City’s representation to that Board.

Respectfully submitted,

Jo Purcell
