The Woodbridge Irrigation District is came one step closer to starting construction on its new office complex, directors said at a board meeting Thursday morning. Andy Christensen, general manager of the district, said they need to have an architect finalize plans for the building and respond to comments from the City of Lodi on how their water and sewer lines will operate. Once those two steps are completed, they will be able to obtain a building permit.

The plans will be formally presented at a meeting early next year and Christensen said he would like construction completed by September 2011.

    Its interesting to observe that people and organizations that can make decisions and control how tax dollars are spent, have no difficulty in finding the money to spend on projects that directly benefit themselves.
    I remember a story I heard where a new facility was built and furnishings paid for, for a building in San Francisco to house the members who serve the poor. Mother Theresa, who led this organization, was invited to the grand opening. She saw how nice everything was, and ordered all the comfortable beds and furnishings removed and given away. She stated that it was not appropriate for the members to be living in luxury while the people they served had nothing. She slept on the floor that night with nothing but a mat and small pillow.
    Maybe people in power who can spend people’s money on themselves should learn from Mother Theresa and understand what it means to serve others.
    When I saw the DMV increase its expense from 4,000 per month to 34,000 per month, and when I read this sorry in Lodi News about Woodbridge, it reminded me of Mother Theresa and how she saw things as they should be.

    Joe makes a good point.
    WID needs to spend the 1.2 mil we Lodidians pay to WID every year and will continue to pay for the next forty years and more--- for water we really do not need to buy.
    This building will have beautiful river view and plenty of room for expansion even though the canel is built out.
    Maybe one day WID will accumulate so much Lodi tax money they will need to spend it on some other "pork" project---maybe another dam or another forty million dollar water treatment plant we do not need.

    Terrific, another taxpayer funded entity spending money on needless "offices". There are a multitude of empty commercial buildings in Lodi that would most likely rent pretty cheap right now. But NOooo, they need "new offices", existing stuff isn't good enough?
    What a waste. Typical decision made by people who don't feel the impact of their spending.
