Message from the Executive Director

Preliminary budget reflects District's core mission priorities on behalf of taxpayers

As we start the new calendar year, we are excited to share with the public and our lawmakers the work of the District through our submission earlier this week of the District’s fiscal year 2019–2020 preliminary budget. While budgeting is a year-round activity to ensure transparency and accountability, formal reports at key dates throughout the year is one way we provide an overview of our course in protecting our shared water resources and providing information on the critical work that lies ahead.
