Responsibilities of the Board A five-member board of directors governs our district, with each director elected to represent one of five geographic areas. The directors serve overlapping four-year terms. The board establishes policy on the district's mission, goals, and operations. It represents the general public in deciding issues related to water supply. The board also has the authority to adopt ordinances that have the force of law within the district.
The board reviews staff recommendations and decides which policies should be implemented in light of the district's mission and goals. The board also monitors the implementation of its policies. The board appoints a general manager to supervise all district operations.
Directors are elected to office in accordance with the provisions of the Municipal Water District Law of 1911 (State Water Code Section 71000). Directors are elected officials representing each of MMWD’s five divisions and are elected by voters in the November general election in even-numbered years.
