4. INTERVIEW applicants for the Member of the Bar seat on the Public Law Library Board of Trustees for a one-year term expiring on December 31, 2022, and DETERMINE recommendation for appointment.
  The Committee interviewed two applicants for the Member of the Bar seat on the Public Law Library board of trusttes:  incumbent Dean E. Barbieri (out of county) and from Joshua Klein (Moraga).   Mr. Klein indicated that he wished to withdraw his application in favor of reappointment of incumbent Mr. Barbieri.  Mr. Klein indicated that he applied only in case the incumbent decided not to reapply.

Staff suggested that the Committee share Mr. Klein's application with the Superior Court, which currently has two vacancies in trustee seats appointed by the Court, and Mr. Klein consented to the sharing of his application.  Mr. Barbieri offered to collaborate in encouraging the Court to consider allowing the County to appoint to a third trustee seat in favor of Mr. Klein, which might facilitate the board of trustees in achieving a meeting quorum.

An unidentified caller questioned Mr. Barbieri's eligibility for the trustee seat because he does not reside in Contra Costa County.  Chair Andersen clarified that the board's policy for eligibilty is that an applicant must reside or work within the County, unless statute or the pertinent bylaws specify otherwise.  Mr. Barbieri performs work in Contra Costa County.

The Committee directed staff to forward to the Board of Supervisors its recommendation to reappoint Mr. Barbieri to the Member of the Bar seat.

5. RECOMMEND to the Board of Supervisors the appointment of Mark Hughes to the Business #2 seat and Amy McTigue to the Business #2 Alternate seat, and reappointing George Smith to the Environmental Engineer seat and Ron Chinn to the Environmental Engineer Alternate seat on the Hazardous Materials Commission, all to terms that will expire on December 31, 2025.
  The Committee reviewed the recommendations for appointment with Michael Kent.  An unidentified caller asserted that one of the appointees might have a conflict of interest in that he works for an industry with interests in hazardous materials.  Chair Andersen explained that the Hazardous Materials Commission is advisory and that certain seats are designated for industry representatives who bring valuable knowledge and insights to the Commission.  Mr. Kent explained that the Commission bylaws acknowledge these interests and provide that members must recuse themselves from any decision or discussion for which a conflict of interest exists.

The Committee approved the reappointments as recommended and directed staff to forward these recommendations to the Board of Supervisors.
