Transparency and accountability
RCDs are established under California law to be locally governed with independent boards of directors that are accountable to our communities. Our relationships with the communities we serve and their trust are critical to how we accomplish our work.
RCDs are not part of the County government. We are special districts, a form of local government created by the community to meet a specific need such as fire protection, open space, or flood control. RCDs help meet the need for voluntary resource conservation.
As trusted stewards of public and private funds, RCDs are subject to transparency and accountability laws that require public meetings, open records, annual audits, and financial reporting.
Most of EMRCD's funding comes from competitive grants, fee-for-service work, and Merced property tax revenue. Resource Conservation Districts are “special districts” of the state of California, set up under Division 9 of the California Public Resources Code.
