Our Mission, Functions, Board & Committees
The Santa Lucia Community Services District's mission is to provide the residents of the Preserve Community with water, sewer, security, road, storm drain and refuse services as authorized by the California Government Code sections 61600 et. Seq. The District receives operating funds from supplemental tax assessments and direct charges for services. The financial goals of the District are to ensure responsible management of annual operating costs and the buildup and maintenance of appropriate reserves. In administering these responsibilities, the District strives to provide services in the most cost effective and efficient manner possible while identifying and considering the unique needs, concerns and opportunities within the District. Essential to accomplishing the objectives is the selection, training, motivation and retention of qualified men and women as service providers.
