Ramona Municipal Water District’s weighted vote on the San Diego County Water Authority Board will decrease slightly in 2012 from 2011.
The Ramona district will have a 1.59 percent share of the CWA weighted vote during 2012 board meetings. The district had a 1.60 percent share for 2011, a 1.61 percent weighted vote in 2010, and 1.62 percent in 2009.
Member votes are based on the total financial contribution from each agency. The contribution total includes all taxes, assessments, fees and charges paid to or on behalf of the CWA by property located within each member agency’s boundary. The cost of water treatment is not included, but the totals include standby charges, capacity charges, infrastructure access charges, readiness-to-serve charges, connection and maintenance fees, annexation fees and charges for water delivered and sold to CWA member agencies.
The contribution amount covers the fiscal year ending June 30.
The total financial contribution of all 24 CWA member agencies was $9.3 billion for the period ending June 30, 2011, an increase from the previous year’s $8.89 billion. Ramona’s most recent contribution calculation was $148 million. The district’s 2009-10 contribution was $142 million.
