Conservation district improvement continues
Oct. 1, 2013 — Some have called it “growing pains,” but the Honey Lake Valley Resource Conservation District board continues to try and develop policies and procedures that will eventually move the district forward.
A group of local water users attended the district’s Wednesday, Sept. 25 meeting at the Bureau of Land Management office on Riverside Drive.
General Manager Tim Keesey asked the board to table the approval of a contract between the district and Dyer Engineering to assist in the development of the Lahontan Basins Integrated Regional Water Management Plan.
Begun in 2010, the purpose of the plan “is to expand and enhance the collaborative network of water management agencies to effectively manage all aspects of water use and
conservation within the defined region, and where appropriate across regions,” according to the website water.ca.gov.
Keesey said the district should not approve the contract until an attorney can review it. The district currently does not have an attorney, but Keesey said if the district paid an outstanding bill, he could have the contract reviewed.
The board approved a treasurer’s report and scheduled a special budget hearing for 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9. The district also plans to discuss the water plan contract at the special meeting.
Keesey also delivered the first section of a policies and procedures manual for the district. He hoped the board members would review that section and bring back comments at the next meeting when he would present a second section of the manual.
The district’s alleged inability to follow policies and procedures as well as court orders and water decrees has led to conflicts with water users, its Water Advisory Committee and the district board.
Interested parties were asked to gather information regarding the “discrepancies” between the various governing documents to be discussed at the district’s Oct. 23 meeting in an effort to resolve the differences.
