The City of Rancho Palos Verdes is currently conducting a recruitment to fill three seats, which occurred on October 21, 2016, on the City’s Infrastructure Management Advisory Committee. These are volunteer, non-paying positions with four year terms of office ending in December 2020.
The Infrastructure Management Advisory Committee (IMAC) focuses on the City’s infrastructure needs, advises the City Council on capital improvement projects, maintenance issues and solutions, and participates in the creation of the City’s first-ever Infrastructure Management Plan. The topics the IMAC explores include the following: public buildings; park sites; trails; the stormwater system; the sanitary sewer system, including the Abalone Cove Sewer District; street rights-of-way and traffic control devices; and the Palos Verdes Drive South/Portuguese Bend landslide.
The IMAC meets on a monthly basis and is subject to the Ralph M. Brown Act, which means the IMAC meetings are open to the public and Committee Member deliberations are conducted openly. The IMAC prepares an annual work plan that includes reviewing each infrastructure category and reporting to the City Council and the community on the progress of projects, maintenance standards and performance, and the implementation of the Infrastructure Management Plan. The City Council resolution creating the IMAC and information on the City’s infrastructure condition can be found on the City’s website at the following: http://www.rpvca.gov/152/Infrastructure-Management-Advisory-Commi and questions can be directed to the Department of Public Works at (310) 544-5252 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those interested in applying must submit an application to the City Clerk’s Office by 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 22, 2016. To be considered for appointment, an applicant must be a resident of the City of Rancho Palos Verdes.
