Last night, the Twentynine Palms Water District Board of Directors met in regular session. It was Suzi Horn’s first meeting as a Board Director and the Water District welcomed her. On the Water side the District will be adopting changes to the work system, a new technological system called Springbrook that is said to speed up work processes and make things easier on the employees. It is designed to link the different parts of the Water District together and ultimately be a step towards a bright future. On the Fire Department side, Larry Briggs gave his thanks to the Fire Department for responding quickly to a fire that occurred in late November in the historic plaza. For the month of November, the Fire Department responded to 192 calls for assistance. The Fire Department then moved on to talk about what should be done regarding whether they should raise taxes or not. They decided they need to have an informational workshop tentatively scheduled for February 22 in the Water District Board Room. All citizens are invited and encouraged to attend.
