Board Member Compensation

Board members are elected by a vote of the people. They are compensated with a flat per-meeting stipend set according to state law for the time they spend on San Juan business. This is common practice for special districts throughout the State of California. Details on compensation of our district and the surrounding districts can be found here.

Staff and board member compensation information can also be found on the State Controller's PublicPay website.
