Purpose and Duties

This watch-dog group's mission will be to monitor the State's planning process in a continuous and thorough manner. The Committee will keep a road map of the planning process and will call on, and become familiar with, the key individuals, offices and departments involved in the process. It is not the task of this group to evaluate or make judgments about the courses of action being considered but simply and solely to carefully track, record and report on the planning process.

The Committee will keep a historical record of every phone call, every visit, every letter, fax, E-mail, and meeting. The purpose of keeping a complete, permanent record is to document the details of the planning process in the event it becomes necessary to challenge the validity of the plan.

At least every six months the Committee will report in writing to the Commissioners.

At Large Representative 7

All Committee members may be reappointed to the Board after serving their term.

The members of the Bay Bridge Monitoring Committee shall be under the direction of the Board of County Commissioners and shall be subject to removal by the County Commissioners.
