Shall the Montecito Fire Protection District increase its number of directors from three to five?

Impartial Analysis from County Counsel
The Montecito Fire Protection District has adopted a resolution proposing an increase in the number of its directors from 3 to 5. Under Health and Safety Code section 13842, a fire protection district board may have three, five, seven, nine or eleven members. This ballot measure asks the voters of the District to decide whether the number of directors on the District Board should increase from three to five.

If a majority of the voters approve an increase in the number of directors, the two new members shall be elected at the same election on November 6, 2012. One of the new director positions elected by the voters will have an initial term of only two years rather than a full term of four years. The new director serving the two year term shall be the individual receiving the fourth greatest number of votes at the general District election on November 6, 2012.
