Organization

Lassen County Transportation Commission

Consistent with state law, the Lassen County Transportation Commission (LCTC) consists of three members of the Susanville City Council and three members of the Lassen County Board of Supervisors. Each appointing authority (Council or Board) may also select up to two alternative members to serve in their absence of their respective regular meetings. In most instances, the appointing authorities select commissioners that also serve as members of the Susanville City Council and Lassen County Board of Supervisors. Commissioners are appointed to a one year term beginning in January.

The LCTC also includes the Caltrans District 2 representative as a non-voting ex-officio member. The ex-officio membership allows for participation by the District 2 designee in Commission discussions before and after public testimony, but without the ability to vote on Commission matters.
