Boards & Commissions

The Maddy Act

The Legislature enacted Government Code Section 54970 et seq (“The Maddy Act”) to increase public awareness of appointments to be made by any local government and to provide the local legislative bodies access to a talent resource that otherwise would go underutilized.

Government Code Section 54972 requires each legislative body to prepare on or before December 31st of each year a “Local Appointments List” (“List”) of all regular and ongoing boards, commissions and committees which are appointed by the legislative body of the local agency. The List must contain the terms that will expire during the next calendar year, along with the name of the incumbent appointee, the date of appointment, the date the term expires, and the necessary qualifications for the position.
