SUBJECT
Title
Ratify the Appointments of Mayor Larry Klein and Vice Mayor Nancy Smith to the Santa Clara County Unhoused Task Force as the City of Sunnyvale Representatives

Report
BACKGROUND & DISCUSSION:
In January, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors (BOS) approved the creation of an Unhoused Task Force. This Taskforce will address homelessness in the County with a focus on emergency, short-term and transitional housing. The Task Force is expected to work through June 2021 with appointment terms to last the duration of the Task Force existence.

The Task Force membership includes at least one mayor or councilmember from each of the 15 cities in Santa Clara County. Due to the urgent need to begin, the BOS requested that elected officials apply individually to the BOS. The BOS appointed Mayor Klein on August 11 and Vice Mayor Smith on September 1 as the City's representatives.
