Report 2015-102: Central Basin Municipal Water District: Its Board of Directors Has Failed to Provide the Leadership Necessary for It to Effectively Fulfill Its Responsibilities (Release Date: December 2015)

Recommendation #32 To: Central Basin Municipal Water District

To ensure it complies with state law and its own administrative code, the district should require board members to report back to the board on meetings and conferences they attend at the district's expense. The district should record these reports in meeting minutes or document them in expense files before it reimburses the board members for their travel expense claims.

60-Day Agency Response

This was previously approved in the Administrative Code and can be found under Part 3, Chapter 1, Article 1, Section 1.5 (e). Additionally, to ensure Board members abide by the policy, a line item has been added to the Board agendas for Directors to report on Meeting and Conference attendance. Expense forms have also been updated to include the date the Board member reported their attendance. Directors will not be reimbursed for conference expense until they make a report at the Board meeting.
