Board Meeting Actions

Board approved budgets to allow operation improvements and a moderate increase in expenditures that remedy deferred maintenance, sets aside “rainy day” replacement and vehicle replacement reserves and establishes an investment category for optimizing District funds for future needs.
Board also discussed when to hold a special workshop for public input about a proposed water conservation ordinance and agreed to hold the planned workshop on July 9th.
In other news, the Board was advised that proposed park expansion and closing K Street by County Parks Department will be heard by Board of Supervisors on August 11th.
Board Workshop on July 9, 2015 about a proposed water conservation ordinance
A review and discussion about an Ad-Hoc Committee recommendation to adopt a water conservation ordinance which would, if approved, set various levels of water conservation measures to be imposed. In the event that the drought conditions persist and/or worsen, the Board could enact conservation steps to conserve drinking water. The Governor Brown asked all state water agencies to promote and support efforts to achieve 25% reduction in local drinking supplies, especially those receiving water from the State Water Project and the Colorado River. Governor’s office is using the State Water Resources Board to work out how best to achieve this statewide target/reduction of 25%. Groundwater sources and supplies are also receiving special scrutiny by State officials. Conservation is considered a statewide problem in this time of extreme or severe drought conditions. The uncertainty about the persistence of drought conditions is a concern for all water supply agencies.
For more information or a copy of the proposed Water Conservation Ordinance, please contact the District office at 467-3388.
