The District Board has prepared this Manual to assist its Commissioners by documenting accepted Board practices and clarifying those expectations each Board member should continually strive to attain. It is acknowledged that the successful administration of District affairs is greatly enhanced by agreement of the Board and the District’s Executive Staff to be bound by the practices and policies identified herein. While attempting not to be overly restrictive, policies, procedures, and acceptable Board conduct are established and articulated herein to guide each Board member in representing and governing the District.
This Manual provides an overview of important Board policies. However, it cannot incorporate all material and information necessary for District operations. The District is bound by many laws, regulations, resolutions and other legal requirements. Because of this, the Board works diligently to remain educated to the greatest extent possible regarding the statutes, regulations, and other District policies that govern the conduct of Board members in order to provide the best and most ethical service to the District.
