Committee Recommendation: The Administrative Committee reviewed this item on January 19, 2016 and recommended ___________________.

CEQA Compliance: N/A

 

SUMMARY: Attached as Exhibit 2-A, is draft Ordinance No. 171 that would increase the amount of compensation to directors from the current $110 per day to $135 per day for attendance at meetings of the board, or for each day's service rendered as a member of the board by request of the board. The maximum number of days that directors may receive compensation will remain unchanged at 10 days per month.

 

The current compensation rate of $110 was established by Ordinance No. 126 in 2006. Ordinance No. 171 proposes to increase the rate of compensation by 23%, which is the rate of escalation in the CPI between 2006 and 2015. This is less than the 5% per year increase authorized by Water Code Section 20202.

 

If adopted on second reading, this ordinance would be effective 60 days after adoption. Notice of the public hearing has been published twice in a local newspaper as required by Water Code Section 20202 in accordance with Government Code 6066.

 

RECOMMENDATION: Following the public hearing on this item, the Board of Directors should adopt the first reading of Ordinance No. 171 and schedule it for second reading at the next Board meeting.
