HI-DESERT AND JOSHUA BASIN WATER BOARDS MEET TONIGHT

The Hi-Desert Water District Board meets tonight. Among items of interest is a $5,000 a month consultant. Managing editor Tami Roleff takes a closer look…
Among the items on the agenda for tonight’s regular meeting of the Hi-Desert Water District Board of Directors, the Board will be asked to authorize forgiveness of a $6 million loan by the State Revolving Fund for Phase 1 of the Wastewater Reclamation Project. The Board will also be asked to approve an agreement with a state lobbyist firm for $5,000 per month. Finally, the board will hear an overview of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan to restore the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta ecosystem. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the District’s offices on the Highway and Inca Trail in Yucca Valley.

The Joshua Basin Water District Board will meet in both a closed and regular session tonight. Reporter Mike Lipsitz checks the agenda…
Prior to tonight’s regular meeting of the Joshua Basin Water District the board will meet for a 5 p.m. special closed session in connection with the search for a general manager. Among the items to be considered when the regular meeting convenes at 7 p.m. is a review and likely approval of a required notice of an impending rate increase for mailing to customers. The proposed increase would take effect in March 2014 and would increase the average residential bill by a little over $3 a month each year for the next five years. The increase, if approved, will be the first for the District in three years; the resulting rate will still remain below average compared to other area water providers. According to the proposed notice statement, the increase is needed to help fund water purchased from the Mojave Water Agency, repair and replace aging and undersize pipes, and to fund increasing operating expenses.
