Independent Special District
Elsinore Valley Cemetery District is an Independent Special District. Independent Special Districts are sanctioned under California law for the performance of local governmental functions within specified boundaries. Special Districts are independently audited annually and are subject to state and public scrutiny like other forms of local government. According to the state legislative analyst office, Independent Special Districts have consistently shown the slowest rate of spreading growth for local governments. Districts are governed by Boards of Directors or Trustees either elected or appointed for fixed terms and are directly accountable to the public they serve. Here at Elsinore Valley Cemetery District the Board of Directors are appointed to a four-year term by the County Board of Supervisors. Currently we have a five-member Board of Trustees. The Trustees are members of the community and each Trustee lives within our District boundaries.
