The Board of Trustees is comprised as follows:

  • One member of City Council appointed by City Council
  • One Director of the Regional District Board appointed by the Regional District Board
  • Two additional residents of Electoral Areas A, B, C, or D appointed by the Regional District Board
  • The remaining members as appointed by City Council.
