Project/ Issue Relates To: ❑Council Goals/Priorities ❑Adopted Master Plan(s) ❑X Not Applicable BACKGROUND The 2008 ballot measure (3-310) that created the Library Service District of Clackamas County, as well as the intergovernmental agreement (IGA) signed after the creation of the Library District, describe the structure and role of the Library District Advisory Committee (LDAC). The primary roles of LDAC are to evaluate the provision of library services relative to Oregon Library Association standards, as well as any proposed changes to the IGA or the boundaries of the District, and to conduct an annual audit of District spending. 503.635.0215 380 A Avenue PO BOX 369 Lake Oswego, OR 97034 www.lakeosweao.city Page 2 The Board of County Commissioners acts as the governing board of the Library District. The IGA requires the District board to appoint as LDAC members the nominees of each city comprising the Library District. Nominees for LDAC are typically members of local library boards. No term lengths are specified in the ballot measure or IGA, but LDAC terms are effectively limited to the maximum membership term of local library boards. DISCUSSION The Lake Oswego Library Advisory Board (LAB) member who currently represents the City on LDAC is Jacquie Siewert-Schade. Ms. Siewert-Schade's term on LAB is about to expire on June 30, 2022. Therefore, it is appropriate for the City Council to nominate a new LDAC representative from among current LAB members. Furthermore, it is recommended that a second LAB member be nominated as an alternate. Most library cities now have an alternate representative appointed in addition to their primary representative, which supports the smooth functioning of LDAC. Current LAB member Mark Pontarelli is recommended for nomination to LDAC as the City's primary representative, due to his record of service and engagement on the Library Advisory Board. Mr. Pontarelli will bring strong communication skills and a strategic thinking approach to his LDAC role. Current LAB member Sherry Swackhamer is recommended for nomination to LDAC as the City's alternate representative. As the current chair of the Library Advisory Board, Ms. Swackhamer is a knowledgeable and engaged board member and will be in a position to stand in for Mr. Pontarelli as needed. RECOMMENDATION Adopt Resolution 22-15, nominating Library Advisory Board members Mark Pontarelli and Sherry Swackhamer for appointment to the Clackamas County Library District Advisory Committee.
