Templeton Community Service District seeks candidates to serve on the Board of Directors

Those who might be willing to serve on the board must submit a letter of interest by September 28.

– Templeton Community Service District is seeking candidates to join the Board of Directors.

The Templeton CSD is an independent government agency that provides water, sewer, fire and emergency, solid waste, parks and recreation services as well as limited drainage and street lighting services to about 8,000 residents. Council members play an important role in how these services are delivered by setting policies, setting priorities, setting utility rates and ensuring that taxpayers’ dollars are spent efficiently and effectively. efficient.

The board of directors is made up of five people, for staggered terms of four years, and meets twice a month on the first and third Tuesdays at 7 p.m. Council members also serve on committees and may represent the district on other regional agencies or commissions. Board members earn $150 per day when attending meetings or training, up to a maximum of $600 per month.

Effective board members do not need to have expertise or even experience with services provided by the district, but must be able to devote the time necessary to quickly become familiar with the issues facing the district, spend hours before each meeting to review documents and prepare for the meeting, and be able to work with other council members, district staff, and the community to deliver the best results for the district and its residents and businesses .

Why is there a vacancy on the board?

During the nomination period for the November 2022 election, only one candidate, incumbent Wayne Petersen, submitted paperwork to run for one of the two vacant seats on the board. Since there is only one candidate, there will be no election in November for the Board of Directors. Wayne Petersen will fill one of the two seats, and California’s election code allows the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors to appoint someone to the second seat if there are fewer candidates running than open seats.

The Templeton CSD hopes to find interested residents so that the County Board of Supervisors can appoint someone who is willing to fill this important role. The term is for four years, beginning in December 2022. The only requirements for this position are that the person be a registered voter and reside within the district boundaries.

The Templeton CSD is asking residents who may be willing to serve on the Board of Directors to submit a letter of interest, providing a brief description of their background and previous community service, by September 28, 2022. Additionally, he asks that any resident considering serving on the board, attend the October 4 board meeting at 7 p.m. in the district board room at 206 5th Street, Templeton (attendance remote is also available at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83984431046?pwd=Tk81WWdZUlNlWE5pdUh1bEhXdjl1dz09 or by calling 1-669-900-6833 with meeting ID 839 8443 1046 and passcode 765323 ) where the board may consider making a recommendation to the county board of supervisors regarding the appointment of a member of the board.
