Recommended action

Adopt a resolution appointing nominees to the office of Director of the North Bay Water District. (First and Second Districts)



Executive Summary:

North Bay Water District is a landowner district located in southern Sonoma County.  The District called an all-mailed ballot election to take place on October 27, 2020, to fill three Director offices.  If the number of nominees is equal to or less than the number of offices to be filled, Elections Code §10515 provides for appointment of the nominees by the Board of Supervisors, rather than requiring an election.



The attached resolution includes the names of the candidates who have qualified for appointment to the North Bay Water District pursuant to above-stated provisions of state law.  Further, Elections Code §10515 requires that these appointments be made by the Board of Supervisors, as the supervising authority, prior to November 30, 2020.  Each person so appointed shall qualify, take office, and serve exactly as if elected at a general district election for such office.


Upon adoption of this resolution the Registrar of Voters Office will issue certificates of election to the respective nominees.


Prior Board Actions:

On September 10, 2019, the Board authorized appointment of directors in districts with insufficient nominees for the November 5, 2019, General District Election (Resolution 19-0352).
