Here is the board package link for our Helix Water District Board Meeting:
REGULAR MEETING OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Wednesday, December 19, 6pm
7811 University Avenue, La Mesa, CA 91942-0427
Interesting Agenda Items:
Item 6 (Page 86). Election of Officers (again)
- Due to an Irrigation Law oversight the Presidency did not change last board meeting, it has to occur after the First Friday of the month, hence I am still President and then Tomorrow marks the last day of my Presidency of the Helix Water District Board (yes, it took me 11 years to get there). But now per our policy that was adopted in 2017, the board will elect new officers annually, and in my opinion it should be rotated. Furthermore in my opinion, no board member is of greater stature than the other board members and we are only as strong as our weakest link. We must work together and respect each other to do the best we can for the people we serve. I have had the pleasure to serve as Board President and during my leadership we have excelled and increased transparency and outreach to our customers. I am so proud of the Helix Water District in embracing new ideas, new technology and new approaches. Thank you for allowing me to serve you.
Item 7 (Page 90). Annual Update of the District Policies and Procedures Manual
- The board conduct a public hearing to receive comments on miscellaneous fees and charges proposed for 2019 in the policies and procedures manual and adopt Resolution 18-48 approving and authorizing adoption of the policies and procedures manual, effective January 1, 2019.
- Most of the items are just wordsmithing and corrections with some increases in costs due to salaries and some less due to other factors, all fees are backed up by documentation.
As always, I welcome your comments and feedback.
