The District Board of Directors met on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, at 4:30 P.M.

The Board of Directors held a public hearing and adopted the Impact Fee Land Use Assumptions (LUA), and Capital Improvement Project (CIP) list as a part of the Impact Fee Study approved and initiated in March 2022. The study is being completed by the professional engineering firm Kimley-Horn, and the LUAs and CIP list were reviewed and recommended for adoption by the District's Capital Improvement Advisory Committee. This adoption is part of the process of adopting Impact Fees, a one-time charge or assessment imposed by an entity against new development to generate revenue for funding the cost of capital improvements related to the new development. 

As part of the District's continuous effort to recruit and retain a high-quality workforce, the Board of Directors adopted resolutions to amend the District's profit sharing and 457 retirement benefits for employees. The amendments lower the eligibility age from 21 to 18 years old, reduce the eligibility timeframe from twelve months of service to ninety days, and allow employees to enroll in the plans monthly instead of quarterly when they become eligible. These amendments stemmed from a thorough review of similar entities' benefits and inputs from the District's retirement benefit providers. 

The Board of Directors awarded Day Services the Joshua Main Street Sewer Line Replacement Project Construction Contract. This project is located on North Main Street in Joshua and involves replacing approximately 780 ft of a 6-inch clay sewer line with 8-inch PVC to prevent infiltration and reduce the risk of sewer backup from within the main sewer line. The District received one bid from Day Services for $183,908. The project has a contract time of 90 days. 

The Board of Directors optioned to table awarding of the FM/HWY 4 project pending discussions and further review of projects in the area and to reassess the project's scope in 2024. 

District staff continues prioritizing active leak control practices and procedures in identifying water loss and the corresponding strategies to reduce leakage. The Operations and AMI Departments have significantly reduced water loss over the last 360 days, with the Total Water Loss rolling average percentage dropping from 15.94% in February 2022 to 10.84% in February 2023. Through this continued effort, JCSUD will increase revenues and benefit from the extension of sustainable water supplies, reduced operating costs, improved system hydraulics, and improved environmental stewardship. 

The Board of Directors also recognized the following employees for their years of service to the District:
