The MPO Governing Board is composed of twenty-three (23) voting
members, and two (2) nonvoting members. The nonvoting members are
accorded the same rights and privileges as other members, except
the right to present resolutions or motions or to vote on them.
The Governing Board is vested with the responsibility for exercising the powers of the MPO including the final decision on all policy matters, adoption or endorsement of transportation plans and programs, adoption of budgets, approval of agreements or contracts, adoption of rules, and establishing or changing its internal operating structure. In addition to the structure shown in the Committees flowchart, the Board may appoint special committees and task forces composed of public and/or official representatives for the purpose of seeking advice and recommendations as necessary.
