In its last public meeting before the June 8 election, North San Joaquin Water Conservation District directors discussed the groundwater recharge, a potential new office site, a grand jury report and Measure C.
The district voted unanimously to begin a process that would enable it to open a small office on Sacramento Street to house district records. The district needs an office because the city of Lodi will stop providing support work for the district as of June 30. The district currently pays $25,000 to the city and for the collection of groundwater charges. To rent and furnish the office and hire a temporary employee from Blue Ribbon Personnel of Lodi would cost the same amount as the district currently pays the city.
