Board of Trustees

Board of trustees

The District is governed by a Board of Trustees consisting of fifteen members. One trustee is appointed by the city council for each of the fourteen incorporated cities within the District and the Board of Supervisors of Alameda County appoints one trustee representing the County-at-large. Each trustee serves a two-year or four-year term. The Board determines the general policies to be followed, employs the District manager, approves the annual budget, and controls the expenditures. Each fiscal year, the Board determines the rates of the special tax and benefit assessment that will be levied upon property owners.
