The Board of Directors utilizes Standing and Special Committees to conduct its business efficiently.
In January 2019, the Interagency Committee, comprised of elected officials and staff from the City of Scotts Valley, Scotts Valley Fire Protection District, Scotts Valley Unified School District and Scotts Valley Water District was formed. The Interagency Committee objectives are to provide a unified source of information on community related matters, demonstrate effective interagency relationships and through transparancy build and maintain trust of public agencies.
