Board & Committees
BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Monterey Bay Unified Air Pollution Control District is governed by a Board of Directors and exercises all the powers of the District. Those powers include, but are not limited to, adopting the District’s budget, setting staffing levels, adopting rules and regulations, setting District policies, authorizing litigation, and evaluating the performance of the APCO and District Counsel. The Board consists of eleven members: six County members and five City members.
The Board of Directors regularly meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. The Board typically does not meet during the months of January and July. These are determined ahead of time and noted on its annually adopted Board Meeting Schedule. The Schedule does not include special meetings that may be called, or scheduled meetings which may be cancelled at the direction of the Chair.
BUDGET, PERSONNEL AND NOMINATING COMMITTEE
The Budget, Personnel and Nominating Committee assists in the preparation of the annual budget for the District. Following consideration, the Committee then presents the annual budget with recommendations to the District Board of Directors. The Committee also proposes a slate of officers and recommend staffing levels. In addition, following the formula set forth in the District Unification Agreement, it insures proper allocation of the total budgeted cost to the cities and counties included within the District.
The committee consists of five appointed Board members and meets on an as-needed basis. Meetings are open to the public and subject to the Brown Act with regard to the posting of Agendas.
Each member of the Board of Directors may nominate two members for appointment to the Advisory Committee. Members of the Advisory Committee are typically selected because of their eminence in their professions and fields of endeavor and as representatives of interest groups in the community. The Committee considers the technical, social, economic, environmental and fiscal aspects of items set to go before the Board at a future meeting in order to arrive at the best advice upon which the Committee may agree, and then make recommendations to the Board.
The Advisory Committee regularly meets on the 1st Thursday of each month. The Committee typically does not meet during the months of January and July. These are determined ahead of time and noted on its annually adopted Advisory Committee Meeting Schedule. The Schedule does not include special meetings that may be called, or scheduled meetings which may be cancelled, at the direction of the Chair.
The District’s Hearing Board, made up of five members appointed by the District’s Board of Directors, makes decisions on permit appeals and revocations, variances, and abatement orders. The Hearing Board meets on an as-needed basis.
