The De Luz Board of Directors has been tasked with upholding the De Luz CSD Mission Statement:
To fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities to the community by providing leadership and direction in implementing the Mission of the De Luz Community Services District.
Directors of the De Luz Community Services District are public officials, elected at large by majority vote of the registered voters within the District boundaries. Elections are normally held in conjunction with County general or special elections. All Directors serve four-year terms which are staggered, and newly-elected Directors can usually depend on the experience of several incumbents to provide continuity in leadership on the Board. Directors must be residents of the District, and absentee landowners are not entitled to vote in these elections. The Board is similar in many respects to a City Council or County Board of Supervisors, except that its authority is restricted to only those areas of jurisdiction granted to the District by the State Legislature.
At the beginning of each calendar year, the Board elects three of their members to specific offices of the Board: President, Vice President, and Treasurer. The President's primary function is to chair the monthly Board Meetings; he has no particular authority over and above that shared by the other four Directors.
The Board of Directors meets on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. at the District Office; 41606 Date Street, Suite 205, Murrieta, CA 92562.
The Board has two standing committees that meet on a regular basis. Additionally, the Board may appoint ad-hoc committees to address particular subjects which are of concern to the Board and the Community. Under the California Open Meeting Act (the 'Brown Act'), all Board and Committee meetings are open and public, and no more than two Board Members may sit on a committee at one time. Meetings are advertised at least 72 hours in advance; notices are posted at the District Office, on the website, and when possible, on the bulletin boards throughout the District.
