Board of Governors

Board of Governors


The Board of Governors directs Tulare County Association of Governments (TCAG). This group is composed of one representative from each of the eight cities, five members of the County Board of Supervisors, three members-at-large, and on representative of public transit. These 17 members act as the Council of Governments (COG), the Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA), and the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). These members, plus the District Director of Caltrans, sit as the Policy Advisory Committee.

The Tulare County Transportation Authority (TCTA) is also directed by the TCAG Board, less the at-large members, public transit representative, and Caltrans.

 TCAG is dedicated to reducing printing costs and recognizes the benefits of using technology. In recognition of this effort to reduce costs of paper, printing, postage and mail delivery service, TCAG has initiated a “paperless” agenda process for the Tulare County Association of Governments and the Tulare County Transportation Authority Board Meetings.
