Meeting Agendas & Minutes
Agendas for upcoming meetings, and minutes for past meetings, are available at our Commission Meetings page.
The District usually holds public meetings the third Tuesday of every month at the El Monte Fire Station located at Foothill College. Meetings start at 7:00 p.m. However, pursuant to the provisions of California Governor’s Executive Order N-08-21, issued on June 11, 2021, meetings of the Commission will be held by teleconference only. No physical location will be available for these teleconference meetings; however, members of the public will be able to participate in the meetings via Zoom, as noted in each meeting’s agenda.
The elected Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors from District 5 makes the appointments to the LAHCFD Commission, which are approved by the full County Board of Supervisors. For information on how to apply for an appointment, see our Applying to Serve as a Fire District Commissioner Page.
