Board of Governors

TCAG is dedicated to reducing printing costs and recognizes the benefits of using technology. In recognition of this effort to reduce costs of paper, printing, postage and mail delivery service, TCAG has initiated a “paperless” agenda process for the Tulare County Association of Governments and the Tulare County Transportation Authority Board Meetings.

Effective September 1, 2016, TCAG will no longer print and mail copies of the agenda.

 

Responsibilities 

The Board of Governors directs Tulare County Association of Governments (TCAG). This group is composed of one representative from each of the eight cities, the five members of the County Board of Supervisors, and three members-at-large. These 16 members act as the Council of Governments, the Regional Transportation Planning Agency, the Tulare County Transportation Authority, and the Metropolitan Planning Organization. These members, plus the District Director of Caltrans, sit as the Policy Advisory Committee.

This body offers advice on issues that will be presented to the Board of Governors. The Transportation Authority is also directed by the TCAG Board, less the at-large TCAG Board members and Caltrans representative.
