San Bernardino County's Board of Supervisors invites the public to apply for the County's Redistricting Commission. The 7-member commission will assist the County in redrawing supervisorial district boundaries, which is required every 10 years following the U.S. Census. The purpose is to ensure that each district has nearly the same number of residents and meets other criteria.
In the past, the Board of Supervisors completed this task. However, the new county charter approved by voters in November requires the board to appoint a redistricting commission to participate in the process. The commission will hold its first meeting in May.
Commission members and alternate members will receive a stipend of $100 for each meeting they attend and reimbursement for mileage exceeding 20 miles round-trip from their home.
Applications signed in ink must be postmarked no later than April 5 or hand-delivered to the Clerk of the Board's office by 5 p.m. April 5. The application is available here or by contacting the Clerk of the Board at (909) 387-4831.
