District Transparency
Certificate of Excellence




The Monterey Regional Waste Management District has earned the Special District Leadership Foundation’s (SDLF) District’s Transparency Certificate of Excellence. This program was created by SDLF in an effort to promote transparency in the operations and governance of special districts to the public and to provide special districts with an opportunity to showcase their efforts in transparency.
The certification process is completed biannually.

Three main subject areas include:

  • Basic Transparency Requirements
  • Website Requirements
  • Outreach Requirements

These are a sampling of all the requirements needed to complete the transparency certificate.
