BSD Community Committees

  • Many committees and task forces assist the District in decision-making about maintenance, finance, cost containment, facilities planning, and engagement. Committee members have expertise in related areas, and the District enlists their help in reviewing data, developing plans, and making recommendations. The valuable insight provided by these individuals has been crucial to the sound decisions made by the Board and staff.
