The Carpinteria Valley Water District (CVWD) is set to approve a resolution at its Sept. 25 meeting to commemorates Special Districts Week.
Special Districts Week, Sept. 22 to 28, was established by the State Legislature earlier this year with bi-partisan approval of Assembly Concurrent Resolution (ACR) 89.
ACR 89 was sponsored by the California Special Districts Association (CSDA), which is a statewide association representing over 1,000 special districts and affiliate organizations throughout the state. Special districts are local government entities created by a community’s residents to provide specialized services and infrastructure.
“Special Districts provide services for the Carpinteria Valley including water, sewer and fire protection with dedication and reliability. We appreciate the staff at these organizations for their commitment to service,” said Bob McDonald, general manager of the Carpinteria Valley Water District.
CSDA’s CEO Neil McCormick added, “Special Districts are formed by residents to provide essential services that they want and need at the local level. They provide an opportunity to have local control while enhancing services that make communities thrive and survive.”
