Board of Trustees

Governance

The District is governed by a Board of Trustees. Each city and county within the boundaries of the District has a right to appoint a single representative to the Board. A Trustee must be a resident and an elector (registered to vote) of the city from which he/she is appointed. The Board of Trustees establishes District policies and makes budget decisions including that of the salaries and benefits of all District employees.

Individual Trustees cannot act independently to change policies, guidelines or budget items including salaries and benefits. All policy, guideline, and budget changes must be an act of the full Board at a scheduled and publicly posted meeting of the Board of Trustees.

*The District also includes the westerly portion of Los Angeles City and unincorporated territory of the County of Los Angeles.

Board Meeting Schedule

The regular meetings of the Board of Trustees are held once every two months on the second Thursday of the month at 7:30 pm at the District’s headquarters located at 6750 Centinela Avenue, Culver City. There are a total of six meetings per year (January, March, May, July, September, November).

Trustees who attend the regularly scheduled meeting are compensated with a payment of $100 in lieu of expenses. By law, Trustees must attend the meeting to receive this compensation. If additional meetings are necessary during the month, no addition compensation is awarded. No Trustee can receive more than $100 per month for serving on the Board regardless of the number of meetings.
