Board of Directors

A seven member Board of Directors governs the District. The Mayor of the City of Fresno appoints four members; the Fresno County Board of Supervisors appoints two members; and the Clovis City Council appoints one member. Each director serves a four-year term and may be reappointed for consecutive terms. Board meetings normally occur on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. The Board must approve the District budget, fees and assessments, direct matters of policy and enact ordinances, and perform other responsibilities authorized and required by the District Act.

The Districtís citizen Board of Directors believes strongly in drawing maximum public value from every tax dollar provided for District services spent on flood control. It achieves this by forging cooperative relationships with other local agencies and creating an expectation of effective, quality service.
