The District is governed by a five-member Board of Directors, (Board), which manages and conducts the business and affairs of the District and determines all questions of District policy. All powers of the District are exercised through the Board. Board members are elected by the people to staggered four-year terms. Each director represents one of the five divisions located geographically within the District. The Board communicates the wishes of the electorate to the District's professional staff and communicates the recommendations of the staff to the electorate by adopting District policy. The Board delegates to the General Manager the authority for implementing its decisions.
