Beaumont-Cherry Valley Water District Changes Start Time of it’s Regular Meetings

BEAUMONT, CA – The Board of Directors of the Beaumont-Cherry Valley Water District voted to start its regular meetings earlier in the evening in order to alleviate the frequency of late evening meetings. The regular meetings will now begin at 6 p.m.

The Board also voted to add one regular monthly meeting to its docket to assure adequate time to study and discuss the increased amount of business on the District’s agenda. Meetings will now be held twice per month, at 6 p.m. on the second Wednesday, and on the fourth Thursday of every month.
The Thursday meetings are generally designated as an Engineering Workshop.

President John Covington said, “This will reduce the number of times the Board has adjourned late in the evening, and allows for more adequate time to address the increasing amount of business before the Board.”
