The Transportation Corridor Agencies will hold a joint meeting of the boards of directors at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 9 at the TCA Offices board room in Irvine. Fred Minagar, chair of the board of directors of the San Joaquin Hills TCA and Christina Shea, chair of the board of directors for the Foothill/Eastern TCA, will lead the meeting.
One item on the agenda includes an authorization request to extend both agencies’ contracts with the California Highway Patrol through June 30, 2020. The reason given was that CHP’s toll enforcement patrol services help to reduce violations related to vehicles with improperly mounted license plates, which result in loss of revenue.
Staff will also present a draft response with regard to Assemblyman Bill Brough. Brough has proposed Assembly Bill 1273, which aims to strip local control from the TCA.
TCA’s next San Joaquin Hills and Foothill/Eastern board of directors meeting will be held at 9:30 a.m. on June 13. Meetings can be live-streamed at the tollroads.com.
