LOCAC has two elected representatives from each of four residential districts within
Los Osos. The term of office is four years. Only persons who live within the residential
district may vote for the candidates from that district. A public election is held
in even-numbered years for half the elected seats. The District 2 Supervisor appoints
the other three members whose terms are two years (odd-numbered years). There is
no limit to the number of terms a member can serve. The new members are seated and
officers are elected by the Council each year at the end of the May LOCAC meeting.
Each LOCAC member is expected to be a member of at least one committee in addition
to participating in the monthly general meeting. A LOCAC member who is not an officer
can expect to spend approximately 6-8 hours per month on LOCAC business.
