Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Ministerial
Type, Section or Code
21080(b)(1); 15268
Reasons for Exemption
The project is an amendment to existing District Rule 4103. The District has no discretion in deciding whether to incorporate said Health and Safety Code sections into its rule and, thus, approval by the District's Governing Board is a ministerial action. Section 21080 of the Public Resources Code exempts from the application of CEQA those projects over which public agencies exercise only ministerial authority.
