The proposed joint powers agency involving the Rainbow Municipal Water District and the Fallbrook Public Utility District will be the subject of a February 12 workshop involving both boards and including public input.

The joint workshop will take place in the FPUD board room and will begin at 4 p.m.

Rainbow general manager Dave Seymour, FPUD general manager Brian Brady, and the legal counsel for the two districts have been developing the draft agreement for the joint powers agency. The draft document was taken to the two boards during their January meetings for comment.

In January the fourth Tuesday occurred prior to the fourth Monday, so Rainbow’s board addressed the document first on January 22.

a board workshop. They felt there wasn’t enough time that they could dedicate," Seymour said.

FPUD’s board agreed to the workshop on January 28.

"It will give the board maybe four hours or so to go through line by line," Seymour said of the joint workshop.

Seymour added that the invitation for public comment will also enhance the eventual agreement.

"Hopefully that will give us an opportunity to bring back a final document," he said.

"Depending on how the workshop goes we may be bringing back the draft agreement for approval as early as the next board meeting," Brady said.

FPUD’s next regular board meeting will take place February 25 while the next regular Rainbow board meeting will occur February 26.

Seems like they have been discussing this for a year or so. How much money have we lost while they dicker about it? Bite the bullet and get on with it.

FPUD has the date and time of this workshop posted on their website but no details on the draft agreement. I couldn't find anything about this on the RMWD website. I would think that if they were really interested in a careful review and public comments on this, they would make available a copy of the draft in advance of the workshop. I have lots of questions. Is it possible to get any answers? I doubt it.
