SUMMARY:Attached as Exhibit 4-A is a proposed Board meeting schedule for the months of January 2008 through February 2009.†† This schedule includes the regular monthly Board meetings, a Strategic Planning session date, and also four supplemental reserve meeting dates should the need arise for special meetings/workshops during the upcoming year.†† The regular Board meetings in January and February are set for the fourth or fifth Thursday of the month.The change is required because the third Monday of January is the Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday holiday, and the third Monday of February is the Presidentsí Day holiday.

 

The meeting dates were selected in coordination with the Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency (MRWPCA) to insure that our meeting dates do not conflict with their Boardís meeting schedule.In addition, there should be no conflict with any regularly scheduled city council or planning commission meeting within the District boundaries on those meeting dates that are set for the fourth or fifth Thursday.††The Board meetings will be conducted in the Districtís conference room unless there is a need to meet in another location.Changes to a meeting time or location will be published on the meeting agenda.

 

RECOMMENDATION:†† Review and adopt the 2008 MPWMD Board meeting schedule.

 

BACKGROUND:District staff coordinated with staff at the MRWPCA on scheduling meeting dates through 2013 to ensure there are no conflicts with regularly scheduled Board meetings.The only month that necessitated a change to the MPWMD Board meeting schedule is in May 2009,when the District will move itís regular meeting date to the third Thursday of the month in order to accommodate constraints on the MRWPCA Board meeting schedule.
