Directors / Employees Compensation
All Board members and employee compensation, including salaries and benefits, are adopted by the Board of Directors in a public meeting process where our customers always have the opportunity to review and comment.
Pursuant to the Water Code Section 20202, it establishes parameters in which Board members can be compensated for their service. Board members are compensated based upon each day of service and not based upon the number of meetings attended. The current policy established by the Board of Directors limits the number of days for which a Director may receive a compensation to a maximum of eight (8) days per calendar month and compensation is limited to $162.87 per day of service.
The California State Controller’s Office hosts a database of public employee salaries. In accordance with AB2040, La Puente Valley County Water District complies with the transparency requirements.
