Water Board Gives Preliminary Nod To Night Meetings

With considerable discussion about the merits of providing public access to meetings versus cost and time efficiency, Ramona Municipal Water District directors are on course to switch their monthly meetings from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. if the ordinance to amend the legislative code is approved at their Jan. 9 meeting. The meeting will start at 2 p.m. in January. The revised meeting time received preliminary approval on a 3-1 vote on Dec. 12 with board members Jim Hickle, Jeff Lawler and Bryan Wadlington in favor, and board president Thomas Ace dissenting.
