The YCRCD is a special district formed under Division 9 of the California Public Resources Code. The YCRCD board members are appointed by the County Board of Supervisors for a term of 4 years and board members can be reappointed multiple times. The YCRCD board can have up to 5 members. Members of the YCRCD board are volunteers; they receive no salaries.
After a brief period of inactivity, the YCRCD started up again in May 2019. It currently is composed of three board members who are Yuba County residents and who care about the agricultural and local environmental concerns facing Yuba County landowners and communities. YCRCD currently has no full-time staff. Staff from Sutter County Resource Conservation District provide part-time assistance with project work and administrative support.
The YCRCD receives no dedicated state or local tax revenue. Funds for satisfying regulatory mandates, administrative tasks, and project activities are currently acquired through focused funding requests to local agencies or through grants.
