The SVRIA's purpose is to enhance and <br />improve communications, data shu'ilig and other technical systems, tolls and processes to protect the public and <br />facilitate regional cooperation. By taking a regional approach, SVIRA will significantly improve the ability of <br />various fire, police and other emergency services providers to communicate with each in emergencies and on a <br />day-to-day basis. <br />The SYRIA agreement calls for one board member to represent the Southwest County Agencies consisting of <br />Cupertino, Saratoga, Monte Sereno, Los Gatos and Campbell. Since the West Valley Mayors and Managers <br />Group is composed of these same municipalities, it is appropriate that it make the appointment to SVIRA as is <br />typically done for the West Valley VTA representative as well The other West Valley cities have all approved <br />this approach. <br />The West Valley Mayors and Managers Group, which typically meets monthly, recommends that the normal <br />order of rotation ofjurisdictions for the two year term be alphabetical, starting with Campbell. Rotation <br />variations far leadership roles or particular experience could be approved as warranted. <br />ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT: <br />Is not a project defined under CEQA, and no further action is required. <br />FISCAL IMPACT: <br />PREPARED BY: <br />None. <br />GREG CARSON <br />Town Manager <br />GL:pg <br />N:\~IGRWdminWorkFiles\2010 Council Reports\6-7-10 SVRIA.doc <br />Reviewed by: :~_Assistant Town Manager ~y~I'own Attorney <br />Clerk Administrator Finance Comnnmity Development <br />
