The Central Contra Costa Transit Authority, a joint powers agency, is a public agency within the meaning of MMBA section 3501, subdivision (c); on its face, the MMBA’s definition of “public agency” is a broad one; the “public agency” sub-category under the statute defining “public agency” in the MMBA is not defined and therefore must be viewed as including entities that have achieved the status of a public agency by statute, constitutional provision, case law or administrative precedent, and by examining the public nature of its operations and characteristics, unless to do so would violate the letter, purpose or spirit of the MMBA.
