Dear Ms. Nauman and Ms. Bennett:

The Enforcement Advisory Council (EAC) met on Thursday, March 25, 1999 in Sacramento. At that meeting the EAC adopted one resolution, Resolution 99-01, as presented below.

Resolution 99-01: The EAC approved, by resolution, amendments to the EAC Structure and Procedures, as attached.

These changes primarily clarify the Mission Statement of the EAC, with inclusion of discussion regarding the closely associated LEA Round Tables' mission. The changes also clarify decisions of the council. Most of these changes are a result of or are consistent with the February 24, 1998 meeting summary of the Partnership 2000 work group on the role of the EAC and the connections with Round Tables, CCDEH-SWPC and it's TACs.

If you have any questions regarding this or any other matter, please contact me at (530) 251-8183 or at my e-mail address esgenter@psln.com.

Sincerely,

Original signed by:

Ernest S. Genter, Chair
Enforcement Advisory Council


Amendments to EAC Structure and Procedures 

Mission Statement:

It is the purpose of the Enforcement Advisory Council (EAC) to advise and assist the California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB), California Conference of Directors of Environmental Health-Solid Waste Policy Committee (CCDEH-SWPC), and/or Local Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) on matters relating to all aspects of the Local Enforcement Agency Program when:

  1. Requested by the CIWMB, CCDEH-SWPC, or the LEA Round Tables
  2. In the opinion of the EAC, advice to the CIWMB, CCDEH, and/or the LEAs is warranted and appropriate.

The LEA Round Tables are closely associated with the EAC and their mission statement is therefore described here. It is the purpose of the Round Tables to be a place for information sharing and discussion of concerns, and a forum for two-way communication between CIWMB staff and LEA staff. LEA Round Tables will determine which issues they want to forward to the EAC for discussion/resolution. Issues and ideas from the Round Tables will be prioritized and sent to the EAC Chair for placement on the EAC general agenda. The top one or two items from each Round Table region, if not on the general agenda, may be raised during the specific EAC agenda item for Round Table Reports. Each LEA Round Table representative to the EAC will be responsible to assure the flow of information between their Round Table and the EAC.

Decisions of the Council

Any official decision of the Council will be by resolution, including the selection of officers. An item is considered "resolved" when a resolution has been passed regarding that item.

Resolution can only be made when a Quorum of the council is present and with six affirmative votes.

A quorum consists of the presence of at least six council members of which at least four must be regional representatives.

Resolutions can be made at any time on any subject.

Resolutions that require the Council to advise or refer a matter to the CIWMB or CCDEH-SWPC must originate within the allotted discussion period of an Agenda Item.

Resolutions are initiated by a motion of any Council member and seconded. If seconded, the chair will ask for a hand vote.

The Resolution will contain all the elements of its execution.

All resolutions that are transmitted to the CIWMB shall be sent directly to the Deputy Director of the Permitting and Enforcement Division (per Resolution 8-96).

At the time each Resolution is passed, the EAC shall decide to whom the Resolution will be addressed (i.e. the CIWMB and/or the CCDEH-SWPC).

"Policy" issues shall be forwarded to the CCDEH-SWPC for consideration.

Approved by EAC Resolution 99-01 on March 25, 1999.
