    Why not make him permanent G.M. He has served as interim many times. It would save the ratepayers from CCWD hiring headhunters, interviewing applicants, contract negotiations etc. which the Board seems to be incompetent in doing.

      Looks like another increase in rates. (I TOLD YOU SO), I've been saying that a lot lately.

Not for Profit Agency?

"The District is a not-for-profit public agency."

No it's not really a not for profit agency/sarc. It's just there to gouge the ratepayers and pay everyone working there very high salaries, lavish benefits and fabulous pensions. I'd say CCWD makes a great profit and they spend it on their own.

        A the immediate above poster, I wish to clarify that I agree with a positive assessment of Larry's character: i.e., he's a great guy. (Not the poop comment, whatever that was.)
