The California Fair Political Practices Commission requires public officials to report additional compensation received when appointing themselves to positions on committees, boards or commissions of a public agency, special district, and joint powers agency or authority. State regulations require the City to post Form 806 on its website listing all its City Council paid appointed positions. When there is a change in compensation or a new appointment, Form 806 will be updated to reflect the change.
Foothill Transit Executive Board
Foothill Transit, a joint powers authority of 22 member cities in the San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys, operates a fixed-route bus public transit service in the San Gabriel Valley. It was created in 1988 after the former Southern California Rapid Transit District (RTD) announced service cuts and fare increases that would negatively impact the San Gabriel Valley. In an effort to provide better public transportation options for the community while reducing costs and improving local control, the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission (LACTC) approved Foothill Transit's application to assume operation of 14 lines which were operated by the RTD.
About its Board
Its five-member Executive Board is elected by the larger joint powers authority once a year at the agency's annual meeting. Members are charged with overseeing the system to ensure levels of service, fares, and operational policies and fair and consistent with policy.
