Governance & Board of Directors
Pico Water District is a county water district formed under the County Water District Law, set forth in Division 12 of the California Water Code. The District is a public agency known as a special district, rather than a private company. The District is governed by a five-member board. The Directors are elected by registered voters who reside within the District’s service area. The Board of Directors establishes District policy and makes decisions based on the District’s - Mission Statement, goals and operational needs. The Board’s policies are administered and implemented by the General Manager, who is hired by the Board. Board elections are held every two years and Directors serve a four year term of office. Terms are staggered to ensure continuity.
The District’s Board of Directors meets at 6:00 p.m. on the first and third Wednesdays of each month at the District’s office. The District Board meetings are open to the public, and members of the public are encouraged to attend the meetings.
