The 2013-14 Santa Barbara County Grand Jury has released a report examining
the Cuyama Valley Recreation District. The Jury received complaints from Cuyama
Valley citizens regarding the district's limited number of community activities.
The Jury found a number of deficiencies in the district's operations including board
and executive oversight, the supervision and training of staff and volunteers, and the
lack of a community-based recreation plan.
The report makes specific recommendations designed to improve the board and
staff management. For instance, the Jury recommends the district board evaluate
the Recreation Director on the basis of performance goals. The Jury also found that
the district is not complying with California's required ethics training for board
members and staff.
The entire report can be found on the Grand Jury's website at sbcgj.org.
The Santa Barbara County Grand Jury is a basic part of state government within
the judicial branch. The Grand Jury is charged with keeping watch over county
government as well as cities and districts operating within the county.
