Governance

The Coachella Valley Public Cemetery District (CVPCD) was formed August 8, 1927, under Section 8890 of the California Health and Safety Code. The CVPCD is one of over 265 public cemetery districts in California which are supported, in part, by property taxes and one of many types of special districts in California.

The CVPCD is governed by a Board consisting five (5) Trustees appointed by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors. Trustees are usually appointed to four-year terms. Laws for the operation of public cemeteries are contained in the California Health and Safety Code, which you may access HERE, as well as other applicable governing code and adopted governing documents.
