The District Board of Directors met on Tuesday, October 17, 2023, at 4:30 PM.
The Board of Directors voted to adopt Resolution 2023-10 to adopt the final Impact Fee Study and imposition of Impact Fees in the amounts recommended by the Board of Directors and Capital Improvement Advisory Committee after the September 19, 2023, public hearing. Impact Fees help fund infrastructure in a way that is fair but ensures that growth pays for itself, manages growth in a more planned and sustainable manner, and contributes to the long-term financial stability of the District. The Board of Directors would like to thank the Capital Improvement Advisory Committee for all their work in this effort.

The Board of Directors awarded the construction contract for Pressure Plane 8 to Pressure Plane 34 Interconnect Project to Dake Construction for $478,760.00. This project includes a meter, pressure-reducing valve assembly, associated piping, electrical, and site improvements. This project will be funded from the Capital Improvement Plan budget with reimbursement from Impact Fees.
The Board of Directors voted to approve the 2024 JCSUD Annual Budget. The budget presented resulted from several months of diligent work by the District staff and Budget Committee. The budget demonstrates fiscal responsibility to maintain water rate stability during an uncertain economy, all while applying strategic planning to manage growth and implement capital improvements on a timely basis.
