Governance Document on Oct. 20th Board Agenda 10:00 a.m.

Posted by Karen Nichols, Desert Sands MDWCA Business Manager

The Governance Document Committee was honored for their work by the LRG Authority Board last week.  I will get a few pictures posted soon from the luncheon in their honor. 

Committee members Jose Luis Arellano, Gabriel Gutierrez, Jeannette Gomez and Santos Ruiz worked with Olga Morales of Rural Community Assistance Corporation for many long hours over many weeks to draft this critically important document. 

The Committee Draft was turned over to the Board in September, and the Board immediately sent it to our attorney for review.  She made some edits, and the Board reviewed the Draft Governance Document extensively at its October 6th meeting.  The Directors sent it back to the attorney with a few questions, and the Final Draft is on the agenda for adoption at the Board meeting on Wednesday, October 20th, 10:00 a.m. at the Vado MDWCA office, 325 Holguin Road, Vado NM. 

The proposed Governance Document is available to download as a PDF file here at our website on the Documents page, or paper copies are available at any of our five offices.  You may send in your comments by email (, by mail addressed to Robert Nieto, President, Lower Rio Grande Public Water Works Authority, 325 Holguin Rd, Vado NM 88072, and you can attend the Board meeting on the 20th.
