RECOMMENDATION

Title
APPROVE nominee for membership on Metro's Service Councils (Attachment A).

Issue
ISSUE
Each Metro Service Council is comprised of nine Representatives that serve a term of three years; terms are staggered so that the terms of three of each Council's nine members expire annually on June 30. Incumbent Representatives can serve additional terms if re-nominated by the nominating authority and confirmed by the Metro Board.

Background
BACKGROUND

The Metro Service Councils are the first and foremost link for bus riders to interact with the Metro team concerning bus service, system performance, and development of the Measure M bus and rail system. Each Service Council consists of 9 representatives and maintaining a full dais provides the best representation for our customers and residents within each of the 5 designated geographic areas of the County. Depending on the Service Council, representatives are appointed by members of the Board of Supervisors, the Mayor of the City of Los Angeles, Local Councils of Governments, and groupings of cities within the designated geographic areas. All Service Council members nominated for appointment must be confirmed by the Metro Board of Directors.
