LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL’S DIGEST

AB 72, as introduced, Holden. Municipal water district: board of directors.

The Municipal Water District Law of 1911 provides for the formation of a municipal water district and the election of a board of directors of a municipal water district. Existing law requires directors, except directors elected at the district formation election, to take office on the first Monday after January 1 succeeding their election.

This bill would instead require the directors of a municipal water district, except directors elected at the district formation election, to take office on the first Friday in December succeeding their election.

Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no. State-mandated local program: no.

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
