Larry Mills Resigns from Goleta Water District Board

The Board of Directors will meet Wednesday to decide how to fill the vacancy

Larry Mills has announced that he will resign his position on the Goleta Water District Board of Directors effective Feb. 1.

Mills, a longtime Goleta resident and business owner, said he and his wife plan to move to Mapleton, Utah, where the couple’s three children live.

“I would like to thank the Board of Directors for making this one of the best water districts in California,” Mills said in a statement. “I would also like to thank the employees of the district who work hard on behalf of all ratepayers.”

The board will hold a special meeting Wednesday to vote on a resolution expressing appreciation for Mills and to consider establishing a process for filling his position.

If the board decides to appoint a replacement, the district will publish a notification, and applications and materials will be made available on the district’s Web site. California law requires that an appointment be made within 60 days of the vacancy.

“Larry provided a wealth of experience for the district,” board president Bill Rosen said in the statement. “He has served on the board continuously since 1991, with the exception of a four-year period. His departure will definitely be felt.”

Wednesday’s board meeting, open to the public, will be held at 4 p.m. at the district office, 4699 Hollister Ave. in Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
