Discussion:  The method of appointment and the authority for appointment varies with each board, commission, district, subcommittee, and other public groups.  The terms for these appointments shall be January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018, with the exception of the following:

·              Oversight Panel for School Facilities - January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2019

Additionally it should be noted, staff has reviewed the governing language for each of the boards, commissions, districts, subcommittees and other public groups and has determined the Building Enterprise Fund Advisory Committee, Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority and the Truckee Meadows Water Reclamation Facility Joint Coordinating Committee do not allow for alternates to be appointed.  Accordingly, the alternate seat(s) will not be appointed for these boards, and will be removed from future rosters.

 

Financial Implications:  None at this time.

 

Legal Implications:  Nevada Open Meeting Law requirements apply to any committee appointed by the Council.
