AB 1757, as amended, Waldron. North County Transit District.
Existing law provides for creation of the North County Transit District, with various powers and duties relative to the planning and operation of a transit system in north San Diego County. Existing law provides for the district to be governed by a board of directors, and requires compensation in the amount of $75 per day, not to exceed $300 per month, be paid to each board member or alternate for attending board meetings and authorizes similar, additional amounts for attending meetings of other public agencies.
This bill would instead provide for payments of $150 per meeting, not to exceed $750 per month, for board members, or alternates when acting on behalf of board members, for attending board meetings or meetings of other public agencies. The bill would thereby impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.end delete
This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to these statutory provisions.end delete
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes. State-mandated local program: yes.
