TO: Members of the Board of Supervisors

RE: Boards and Commissions – Proposed terms of office and term limits
The Board requested staff to review and propose terms for all boards and committees that did not have specific membership terms and/or term limits. The attached is a listing of all committees that fit that category.
The attachment is set out in three tables. The first table is a listing of committees on which only County representatives serve. The second table is a listing of committees on which representatives from the County and City serve. The third table is a listing of committees that have regional representation.
The term limits proposed for the membership in the attached chart were used following the option listed below for the Board to consider:
One year terms – Eligible to serve six consecutive one-year terms (total of 6 years)
Two year terms – Eligible to serve three two-year terms (total 6 years)
Three year terms – Eligible to serve two consecutive three-year terms (total of 6 years)
Four year terms – Eligible to serve two consecutive four-year terms (total of 8 years)
Five year terms – Eligible to service two consecutive five-year terms (total of 10 years)
If you decide to approve the set terms for the membership, you should consider staggering the terms of the current members by designating an initial one-year, two-year, three-year or four-year initial term for each member. The current members would then be eligible to serve additional terms as designated.
