Board of Directors

Print

A five-member Board of Directors governs the Dublin San Ramon Services District by setting policies, appointing officers, and hiring and overseeing the District’s general manager. The Board exercises these powers under the authority of the Community Services District Law (California Government Code section 61000 et seq.). The Board is ultimately responsible and accountable to the people of the District; its roles and responsibilities are explained more fully in Guidelines for Conducting Board Business.

Open Meetings

How Do I Participate?

Board and Committee meetings are open to the public and time is always reserved for the public to address the Board.

The DSRSD Board meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. in the Boardroom at the District Office, 7051 Dublin Blvd., Dublin. Special meetings may be held at other times. Board Committees meet as needed, typically prior to Board meetings, in a conference room behind the Boardroom.

Elections

DSRSD directors are elected every two years in November. The office is non-partisan and directors serve “at large,” meaning they represent all customers within the District’s boundaries. Their four-year terms are staggered, with two terms expiring in one even-numbered year and three terms expiring the following even-numbered year. Two terms will expire in 2018, and three terms will expire in 2020.

To be eligible to run for the DSRSD Board of Directors, you must be 18 years of age, a registered voter and reside within the District’s boundary. The District is a multi-county agency that includes portions of Alameda County and Contra Costa County. Candidates should contact election officials in both counties (Alameda County Registrar of Voters and Contra Costa County Election Division) for filing requirements, and refer to the District’s policy on Candidates’ Statement Costs.

More information will be available on this website before each election.  The next District election will be held on Nov. 6, 2018.

Boardmember Compensation

DSRSD directors receive compensation of $146 per day for each day of service to the District, up to a maximum of 10 days per month. The District’s current rate is well below the maximum amount allowable by state law, which is $242 per day of service in 2014. The District’s Day of Service policy and the California Government Code define a day of service. Eligible activities include:

  • Serving in a policy maker role at properly noticed meetings of the Board of Directors, Board Committees, and joint powers authorities (JPA) in which the District is a partner (Committee and JPA appointments are reported on Fair Political and Practices Commission Form 806)
  • Representing the District at a public meeting or public hearing of another public agency when that agency is considering business that involves the District
  • Speaking for the District at public events and community meetings, including ceremonial functions of other agencies
  • Representing the District at professional, technical, and trade association meetings and conferences
  • Taking part in organized educational activities, including required ethics training 

Directors are reimbursed for travel related to District business. The Board must pre-approve travel; the Director Travel and Expenses policy defines allowable reimbursement. Directors do not receive a vehicle allowance or communication allowance.

Directors are eligible to participate in the District’s health and welfare benefit programs during their terms. They also may make voluntary contributions to the District’s tax-deferred 457 plan. Provided that a director voluntarily contributes at least $20 per month, the District matches that contribution up to $10 per month or 25 percent of the monthly contribution, whichever is less. As elected officials, directors are not eligible to participate in the District’s CalPERS retirement program, or retiree medical benefits, unless they were first elected or appointed to the Board prior to July 1, 1994, in accordance with California Government Code section 20322(c).

  

Ticket Distribution

Form 802 was created by the Fair Political Practices Commission (“FPPC”) to report distributions of tickets received by local agencies and distributed to elected officials or employees pursuant to a ticket distribution policy, as set forth in FPPC Regulation section 18944.1. The purpose of the District’s Ticket Distribution policy is to ensure that all tickets and/or passes accepted by the Dublin San Ramon Services District from public and private entities and individuals are distributed in furtherance of governmental and/or public purposes.
