Local Appointments List (Maddy Act, Government Code 54972):

Current Board/Commission Openings:

    Contra Costa Transportation Authority - Citizens Advisory Committee - Open until filled

    A little over 25 years ago, voters in Contra Costa chose to tax themselves to pay for transportation improvements. The Contra Costa Transportation Authority is the agency that invests those sales tax dollars, nearly $70 million a year, into local transportation improvements.

    The Citizens Advisory Committee is charged with monitoring the Transportation Authority’s activities, and upholding a critical element of the sales tax measure – the county’s Growth Management Program. In order for the City of Pinole to receive its share of funding to maintain and improve local streets, we must complete a Growth Management Checklist and submit it to the Transportation Authority. That checklist MUST be approved by the Citizens Advisory Committee before it gets forwarded to the Transportation Authority Board and the funds are released to the City of Pinole. This position is vital in advocating for the City of Pinole.

    Contra Costa Library Commission - Alternate - Open until filled

    The purpose of the Contra Costa Library Commission is to serve in an advisory capacity to the Board of Supervisors and the County Librarian, to provide community linkage to the County Library. To establish a forum for the community to express its views regarding the goals and operations of the County Library and to develop and recommend proposals to the Board of Supervisors and County Librarian for the betterment of the library, including efforts to ensure a stable and adequate funding level for services.

    Submit Letter of Interest to the City Clerk's Office at 2131 Pear Street, Pinole CA 94564

    Contra Costa Council on Aging - Open until filled

    In accordance with the Older Americans Act, the Contra Costa County Advisory Council on Aging (ACOA) is appointed by the Board of Supervisors to advise them on all matters associated with the planning, development and administration of programs relating to older adults. The ACOA is staffed by representatives of the Contra Costa County Area Agency on Aging (AAA). The ACOA consists of forty (40) members. Membership is determined by application and appointment.
