California JPIA Welcomes New Member, Rossmoor Community Services District
The California JPIA welcomes the Rossmoor Community Services District as a new member of the Primary Liability Program and Property Program as of July 1, 2020.
Located in Rossmoor, an unincorporated community between the cities of Seal Beach and Los Alamitos in Orange County, the Rossmoor Community Services District is governed by a Board of Directors and operated by a General Manager. The district, formed in 1986, provides parks and recreation facilities, special events, street sweeping, and maintenance of parkway trees and the signature brick wall for Rossmoor’s 10,500 residents.
During the Authority’s initial risk management evaluation process, the district’s leadership and staff demonstrated an understanding of risk management concepts and an awareness of the value of reducing exposure to risk and loss.
“The Rossmoor Community Services District is excited about recently being selected to join the California JPIA,” said General Manager Joe Mendoza. “The district is looking forward to lowering the level of risk and liability, as well as having training and resources readily available for the employees. The process of evaluating the district’s risk management practices and working with California JPIA staff to increase safety and implement best practices to protect the district is invaluable.”
“The Rossmoor Community Services District takes pride in its mission to provide exceptional, cost-effective services that enhance the quality of life for the residents of Rossmoor,” said California JPIA Chief Executive Officer Jon Shull. “The California JPIA is pleased to welcome an organization whose values mirror our own.” Lucy Gonzalez, Senior Risk Manager for many of the Authority’s Orange County members, will be working directly with the district. “I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with the Rossmoor Community Services District. They value and understand the importance of prioritizing and implementing safety and risk control measures for their residents, constituents, and employees.”
“The Rossmoor Community Services District Board of Directors has always placed safety and risk management as a priority in serving our residents and constituents. Therefore, we look forward to working with the California JPIA to improve safety and minimize risks for residents and visitors using our facilities,” said President Michael Maynard.
