What is a Trustee?

Trustees are elected representatives of their community and as such, their decisions and actions can affect how people perceive that community. As well as community representatives, trustees are stewards of public service, law-makers and policy-makers. Improvement District Trustees in B.C. are elected for a 3year term at an Annual General Meeting. A Chair is elected by the Board of Trustees at the first meeting after the Annual General Meeting. The Chair’s primary responsibility is to preside over monthly board meetings.

Stewardship

Trustees must make decisions to ensure adequate funds are available to maintain current operations and to replace capital infrastructure as it ages. They are required to propose and manage a budget, levy tolls as required and oversee capital projects.

Law-making

Trustees enact powers granted in the Improvement District Act using by-laws and resolutions. Powers include but are not limited to borrowing, levying taxes and entering into contracts.

Policy-making

Trustees enact policies to provide direction for the administration and volunteers. Policy-making may involve establishment of water restrictions, purchase of insurance, staff attendance at conferences, etc.

One measure of a community is the quality and commitment of its representatives.
SPID Boards of Trustees have always demonstrated the vitality of our beautiful Ships Point.
