Special Districts Week
Forestville Water District Commemorates Special Districts Week
Today, the Forestville Water District commemorated Special Districts Week to encourage residents of Forestville to be involved in their community and be civically engaged with their local government.
Special Districts Week, May 15-21, will be established by the State Legislature with approval of Assembly Concurrent Resolution (ACR) 180.
ACR 180 is sponsored by The California Special Districts Association (CSDA), a statewide association representing over 1,200 special districts and affiliate organizations throughout the state. Special districts are local government entities created by a community’s residents, funded by those residents, and overseen by those residents, to provide specialized services and infrastructure.
“Special districts are formed by residents to provide essential services that they want and need at the local level. They provide an opportunity to have local control while enhancing services that make communities survive and thrive,” said CSDA’s CEO Neil McCormick. “We appreciate the Legislature’s support in raising awareness and increasing understanding about the special districts that serve our State’s communities.”
