RECOMMENDATION

 

Staff recommends the City Council (1) adopt resolutions/motions appointing Council Members to various outside agency boards, City Council Subcommittees, and other related bodies; (2) create Subcommittees as needed and make appointments thereto; (3) dissolve Subcommittees as needed; and (4) provide other direction to the City Clerk as deemed appropriate.

 

 

BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION

 

The City Council traditionally has appointed Council Member(s) to represent the City on various “outside agencies” and on City Council Subcommittees.  These appointments are presented this evening for the City Council’s consideration.

 

As the City Council has considered its appointments to City Council Subcommittees, it has been mindful of the requirements of the Ralph M. Brown Act (Brown Act) and the important differences between a “Standing Subcommittee” and an “Ad Hoc Subcommittee.” In summary, Standing Committees are required to comply with the provisions of the Brown Act (including public notification and public participation).  Ad Hoc Subcommittees are not subject to those requirements. 

 

As provided for in the Brown Act, a standing committee has a continuing subject matter jurisdiction or a meeting schedule fixed by charter, ordinance, resolution, or formal action of a legislative body. Whereas, in general, an “Ad Hoc” Subcommittee serves only a limited or specific purpose, is not perpetual, and is dissolved when its specific task is completed.

 

In this staff report, all members of the City Council are respectfully referenced as Council Members (except in the case where a particular body requires the appointment of the Mayor or Vice Mayor).

 

APPOINTMENTS TO OUTSIDE AGENCY BODIES REQUIRING ADOPTION OF A RESOLUTION

 

Some of the outside agency boards require the adoption of a resolution to make Culver City appointments to their bodies.  The proposed Resolutions are included as Attachments 1 through 5.

 

(1) Los Angeles County City Selection Committee

 

The City Selection Committee normally meets once a year, but occasionally a special meeting is held when a vacancy occurs.  The meeting is held in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Division of the League of California Cities.

 

The Mayor is automatically the Member Representative to this Committee. This past year, former Mayor Eriksson was Member Representative and Council Member Fisch was the Alternate Member.  Staff recommends the City Council appoint Mayor Fisch as the Member Representative and appoint an Alternate Member.

 

Recommended Motion:  That the City Council adopt the resolution appointing Mayor Fisch as Delegate and ________                      as Alternate Delegate of the Los Angeles County City Selection Committee.

 

(2) League of California Cities/Los Angeles County Division

 

For the City Council to have representation in the Los Angeles County Division of the League of California Cities, it is necessary that a Delegate and an Alternate Delegate be selected from among the City Council Members.  The Los Angeles County Division holds general membership meetings on the first Thursday during the months of January, March, and May. All General Membership meetings typically begin with a reception at 6 pm, followed by the meeting (unless otherwise noted).  Member cities have one vote each, which is cast by the Delegate or, in the Delegate’s absence, the Alternate.  In the absence of the Delegate and Alternate, a substitute who is a member of the City Council may be designated by the member city in writing.

 

The representatives to the League were Council Member Small, Delegate and Council Member Fisch, Alternate Delegate.

 

Recommended Motion:  That the City Council appoint  _______________ as Delegate and________as Alternate Delegate of the League of California Cities/Los Angeles County Division.

 

(3) Independent Cities Association of Los Angeles County

 

The City of Culver City has been a member of the Independent Cities Association of Los Angeles County for many years, and it is required that the City Council appoint a Delegate and an Alternate Delegate to that organization.

 

The representatives to the Independent Cities Association of Los Angeles County were, Delegate Council Member Eriksson, and Former Council Member Small, Alternate Delegate.

 

Recommended Motion:  That the City Council adopt the resolution appointing

Delegate of the Independent Cities Association of Los Angeles County.

 

(4) Los Angeles County Sanitation District Number Five

 

Meetings for District Number Five are held on the third Wednesday of the month at the Torrance City Hall in Torrance, California.  There is a stipend of $125 per meeting, payable to the Director for attendance, or in the absence of the Director, to the Alternate Director.  The Ex Officio Director of District Number Five is the Mayor.  The City Council may select one of its members as Alternate Director.  The Alternate Director is currently Council Member Fisch.

 

Recommended Motion: That the City Council adopt the Resolution appointing Mayor Fisch as Director, and Council Member ________________, as Alternate Director, to the Los Angeles County Sanitation District Number Five.

 

(5) Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG)

 

Culver City is a member of SCAG, and the City Council is requested to appoint the Official Representative and an Alternate Representative to this organization so the City may continue to participate in their activities. The Mayor is the ex-officio representative to the SCAG General Assembly.

 

The current Alternate Representative is Council Member Lee.

 

Recommended Motion:  That the City Council adopt the resolution appointing Mayor Fisch as Official Representative and Council Member _____________as Alternate Representative to SCAG.

 

 

 

(6) Disaster Management “Area A” Executive Board

 

Culver City is a member of the Disaster Management Area A Executive Board. The Board, which meets infrequently, coordinates disaster management and preparation efforts in Area A, of which Culver City is a part. In 2001, the City Council adopted a resolution appointing the Fire Chief as representative to the Board. The Board has recently undergone some updates to their structure. With these recent changes, the Area A by-laws will be updated to reflect that the Area A Executive Board will now be comprised of the three city managers from each of the Member Cities: West Hollywood, Culver City, and Beverly Hills.  The current representative to the Disaster Management Area A Executive Board, appointed in 2014, is City Manager John M. Nachbar.
