December Service Councils update; opening on South Bay Cities Service Council

As is tradition, all of the Service Councils voted at their November meetings to go dark (not meet) in December. Tentative agenda items for January include updates on Metro Micro and the Station Evaluation Program, as well as the usual roundup of regional items of interest. We’ll provide a list of items in the Service Council’s monthly Source post once those agendas are firmed up. Want to receive meeting reminders with links to the agendas and presentations when they’re posted? Send an email to and specify which Council’s agendas you’d like to receive.

In other news, one of the South Bay Service Council Members submitted her resignation effective in January. The South Bay Council of Governments (COG) has started the search for a replacement candidate.

Service Council members serve three-year terms with no term limits. Annually, three of the seats on each Council expire on June 30. The COG is planning to fill the term of the departing Councilmember along with the usually annual nomination process for the three expiring seats which have a term of July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2025.
