Foothill MWD Approves Budget
The Foothill Municipal Water District (FMWD) board of directors on June 20 adopted its budget for fiscal year 2011-12 continuing to decrease its own expenses. For most agencies, the charges Foothill assesses for its programs stayed the same in anticipation of large capital projects in the future. The 7.5% rate increase adopted by Metropolitan Water District was passed through to customers.
The board in considering the budget and charges looked into the future with the possibility of large expenditures for capital projects such as a recycled water plant and replacement of emergency electrical generators at its pump stations. As the year progresses, decisions will be made on these projects and how large capital items should be paid for.
General Manager Nina Jazmadarian confirmed that the while the district continues to contain costs, it is not able to absorb 75% of Metropolitan’s rate increase as it did last year but assured that the district will continue to look at ways of leveling costs to deflect rate impacts to customers.
FMWD provides imported water to Crescenta Valley Water District, La Cañada Irrigation District among others.
A copy of the budget and budget presentation can be found on the district’s website at www.fmwd.com.
