The Board of Trustees is required to hold an AGM each year to review the previous year with the ratepayers. The financial audit is presented at the AGM, a Chair report is given, and a review of works done and works planned are discussed. Parcel Tax and Toll Utility rate changes are also presented and discussed. If you would like to learn more about your water district please keep an eye open for the next AGM date (Generally held at the end of March) and join us.
