A Short Observation and Question

In my ongoing research I noticed that according to the city website, there have been no scheduled meetings of the Water Advisory Board this year. The last meeting scheduled was for August of last year and the last meeting we have minutes on is from January, 2011. This has been a very important board in the past and deeply involved in the search for new water sources and planning long range water solutions. What are they doing now? Shouldn't they be very involved with the City Councils review of drought restrictions, water use and re-use and long term policies and solutions? By ordinance, the membership has special skills and input from the Chamber of Commerce that would and should be used for any water decisions. Something for the current council to look at.

  1. The former council considered Mayor New and Councilmen Hirschfeld and Alexander their "water board." Did you note Councilwoman Farmer's statement in the July 2nd meeting calling for a "return to transparency"? That pretty much sums it up.
