The Citizen’s Advisory Group (CAG) was established in April 2018 by the boards of San Juan County Public Hospital District No. 1 (SJCPHD #1), San Juan County Fire Protection District #3 (FD #3), and the Town of Friday Harbor (“Town”). Each agency selected one member, and those three members selected the remaining two members. It is an independent body with funding shared between FD #3 and SJCPHD #1. It’s purpose was defined by parallel motions of FD #3 and SJCPHD #1 on April 4, 2018, and is laid out in the minutes of that meeting.
This page will host all of the documents pertaining to the CAG as well as meeting notices. This page will have the most up-to-date meeting time, date, and location information.
The CAG is not bound by the Open Public Meetings Act (OPMA), but unless otherwise noted they have elected to be open to the public.
