During our regular meeting on Tuesday, January 5, our guest speaker was John Sterling, General Manager of the Groveland Community Service District. The main topic of the talk was the increase of Groveland’s water rate. Not an easy topic!  Any proposed increase is always a difficult issue to talk about. John however managed to explain the necessity of this controversial plan. He talked about the sewer system. This system is many years old and is in dire need of a major overhaul. The water system needs improvement and on top of that the GCSD’s pension and benefit plans need to be funded and a host of other expenses. The need for more income is apparent. Read here for more information about this proposal. John also talked about the water conservation and what we can do about it. All the information can be found on the GCSD website.      Thank you John Sterling for this very informative talk.
