Notice of Ordinance Establishing By-Division Voting in the Linda County Water District



At its regular meeting on September 11, 2023, the Board of Directors of the Linda County Water District (“District”) adopted Ordinance No. 148, which changes the District’s existing at-large system of electing persons serving as Directors on the Board of Directors to a system under which one Director will be elected from each of five divisions only by voters residing in each division. The change will take effect with 2024 General District Election. Ordinance No. 148 also approves the official map showing the boundaries of the five voting divisions and establishes a sequence of elections under which voters will elect one Director each from Divisions 2 and 3 in 2024 and then every four years thereafter, and one Director each from Divisions 1, 4, and 5 in 2026 and then every four years thereafter. This change in voting system also will require the Board of Directors to consider adjusting voting division boundaries after each decennial Federal Census beginning with the 2030 Census.

Ordinance No. 148 was enacted unanimously with Directors McAleer, Saunders, Stevens, and Whittaker voting in favor, Director Knudson was absent. A copy of the entire ordinance is available for review at the District office located at 1280 Scales Avenue, Marysville, California 95901 or by clicking https://clients.ruralwaterimpact.com/documents/1248/Ordinance_No._148.pdf.
