Assembly Bill No. 72

CHAPTER 8

An act to amend Section 71253 of the Water Code, relating to municipal water districts.

[Approved by Governor June 17, 2013. Filed with Secretary of State June 17, 2013.]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL’S DIGEST

AB 72, 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 a district formation election, to take office on the first Friday in December succeeding their election.

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

SECTION 1.  

Section 71253 of the Water Code is amended to read:

71253.  

Except for the directors elected at a formation election, directors elected to office shall take office at noon on the first Friday in December succeeding their election.
