Committees

The District Act provides for the creation of advisory boards, committees, or commissions by resolution to assist the Board in performing its job, as defined.

Accordingly, the Board may establish the following type of Board Committees to assist it with policy advice, District Mission implementation, respective expertise, and, very importantly, to help produce the link between the District and the community:

Board Standing Committee – A Committee created by ordinance, resolution, or formal action of the Board comprised of less than a quorum of the Board and/or external members having continuing subject matter jurisdiction or a meeting schedule fixed by ordinance, resolution, or formal action. Annually, the purpose of an established Standing Committee will be reviewed to determine its relevance.

Board Ad Hoc Committee – A Committee comprised of less than a quorum of the Board and/or external members having a limited term, to accomplish a specific task, is established in accordance with the Board Ad Hoc Committee procedure (Procedure No. W723S01), and will be used sparingly. Annually, the purpose of an established Ad Hoc Committee will be reviewed to determine its relevance.

In keeping with the Board’s broader focus, Board Committees will not direct the implementation of District programs and projects, other than to receive information and provide advice and comment.

For more information, contact the Office of the Clerk of the Board at 408-630-2277.
