The MHCSD Board of Directors is responsible for most aspects of the MHCSD, including the annual operating budget. The Board governs all city-like public services, including roads, water, wastewater, storm, solid waste, fire and police protection, parks and recreation, Master Restrictions (CC & Rs) and Public Administration.
The San Joaquin Board of Supervisors will continue to govern all planning and building activities, including the implementation of the Master Plan, development agreements, zoning issues, subdivision maps and building permits. Community Services Districts do not have land use powers and cannot regulate planning and building activities. For more information on the San Joaquin Board of Supervisors, please visit the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors website.
On November 4, 2008, the Mountain House community voted in a historic election for the first MHCSD Board of Directors.
