RMWD turns to state for weed abatement services

Directors of the Ramona Municipal Water District agreed to terminate weed abatement services with the private company, Fire Protective Services Inc. (FPS), and instead rely primarily on the state to provide such services through CalFire.

Within Ramona is a 74-square-mile area in the State Responsibility Area (SRA) for which the state has financial responsibility of preventing and suppressing fires, according to RMWD staff.

Board President Bryan Wadlington said the state program has a high success rate. RMWD will remain responsible for administering its nuisance abatement program for approximately 7 square miles that lie outside the state responsibility area.

RMWD refunds Estates deposit

Ramona Municipal Water District directors voted to return a $5,000 good faith deposit to the San Diego Country Estates Association now that the association’s clubhouse remodeling project has been completed.

The board requested the deposit in January when the association asked the directors for a clearance form needed to proceed with the project.

At that time the water district had questions about the amount of equivalent dwelling units (EDU) required for the clubhouse and lodge.
