A California Special District
Your Local Government
Kern County Cemetery District is a Public Cemetery District; which is, a special district branch of local government that has specific boundaries and is created by a vote of the people who live within the district. This type of local govenment is considered to be the closest type of government to the people.
The Board of Trustees is composed of three members who live within the district boundaries and is appointed by the County Board of Supervisors, on a non-partisan basis to serve four-year staggered terms. It is the Board’s responsibility to transact business and enact resolutions to set policy necessary for governing the affairs of the Kern County Cemetery District.
The regular meeting of your Board of Trustees is a vital part of the democratic process in the conduct of local government affairs. These meetings are open to the public and conducted by your appointed representatives who are responsible as a body for the operation of Kern County Cemetery District.
The Board appreciates your interest and urges citizen participation in all local government matters.
