For board members of the North San Joaquin Water Conservation District, the next 30 days will feature a firestorm of tasks and meetings. Although the board did not adopt a budget or determine any avenues for generating revenue at Monday’s meeting, directors did agree to hold meetings more often and will look to work with private investors to use more surface water. In comparison to most district sessions, Monday’s meeting was a subdued and didn’t contain multiple outbursts and heated exchanges.
In addition to two public workshops, directors will also host a regular session, possibly apply for a grant and look to fill soon-to-be-vacated positions within the next month. The two workshops will individually discuss district finances and potential projects, while the regular session will bring the board closer to replacing its retiring general manager and water master.
