From The Yuma Pioneer (Tony Rayl):

The Republican River Water Conservation District Board of Directors will hold its regular quarterly meeting Thursday, July 9, at the Haxtun Community Center, 125 E. Wilson St.

Among the items on the agenda is approving the purchase of surface water rights with Bonny Company Trust. The board also is supposed to receive a report from Mike Sullivan and Scott Steinbrecher from the State of Colorado concerning negotiations with Kansas regarding the Compact Compliance Pipeline and Bonny arbitrations. Some portion of that report might take place in executive session due to possible negotiation and litigation strategy considerations.

District engineer Jim Slattery will make a presentation regarding the pipeline operations in 2015, and a pipeline update will be given.

The 2014 audit report is up for approval, and the board also is scheduled to approve an engagement letter for the 2015 audit.

The meeting is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Public comment will be heard by the board beginning at 1 p.m.

If needing more information, please contact Deb Daniel, the RRWCD’s general manager, at 332-3552 or 630-3525, or email her at deb.daniel@rrwcd.com. The district’s website is http://www.republicanriver.com.
