Free Wood Available at the Pleasant Valley Tank for MWC Members

As many of you know, the Forest Service cut down hazard trees near the Water Company’s Pleasant Valley tank starting in the fall of 2021. The work was completed just last month.

The bucked up wood is available for Water Company Members to take!

Please DO NOT cut wood at the tank site and be careful working and driving at the tank site.

A cutting permit is required by the Forest Service.

You can get those permits at the following locations:

By the way, the slash piles will be chipped by the Forest Service when a chipper becomes available.


As a reminder…

Our Annual Meeting is this Saturday, August 6th, and we’d welcome any Member’s attendance. Please see this post for more information.

Since this Annual Meeting takes place in the same month as our normally held “Special Call” meeting, which WAS to take place on August 20th, we’ve canceled that “Special Call” meeting.

Upcoming Meetings – Quarterly Board Meeting and Annual Meeting

Our 1st meeting of the 3rd quarter of 2022 WILL NOT be held on the usual 3rd Saturday (7-16) due to the Deathride taking place that day.

Instead, the meeting will be held on Saturday, July 23rd. It will be in-person (at the Markleeville Library) and via Zoom. The meeting starts at 8:30 a.m.

Our Annual Meeting will take place on Saturday, August 6th and it will take place at the Alpine County Administration Building Board Room (99 Water St., Markleeville) in-person and via Zoom. The meeting starts at 10:00 a.m.

Agendas for both meetings, as well as previous meeting minutes, operations reports, financials, and Consumer Confidence Reports can all be found on our Important Documents page so feel free to do whatever homework you need to in advance of these meetings.

While participation of members and qualified persons is always encouraged at any meeting, IT IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT at the Annual Meeting where a quorum of members (approx. 40) is needed in order for elections to be held on that date. Other important business also calls for a quorum.

Attending that meeting either in-person or virtually would help us eliminate having to send a lot of materials, and ballots, via mail, and would also make the meeting more productive for everyone.

To RSVP for either meeting, email us at markleevillewatercompany@gmail.com.

Annual Meeting Postponed Due to the Tamarack Fire – and a Huge Thank You

Our annual meeting, previously scheduled for August 7th, 2021 at Turtle Rock Park, will be postponed to a date later this fall.

We’ll update this blog once we have a new date and location set.

We wish you all well as we all begin the recovery process.

We would also like to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to all of the first responders, especially our Operator, Buck McLelland, whose skills and devotion saved our plant from destruction.

Upcoming Meeting Schedule – Including the Annual Meeting. Members Encouraged to Attend!

Hello MWC Members!

As many of you know, over the last many months, your Board of Directors and Team has been meeting virtually (via Zoom).

At this point, mostly because it’s so convenient, we plan to continue to do so. 

We welcome your participation at any of the meetings, especially the annual meeting in August, where YOUR INPUT IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT.

HERE’S THE SCHEDULE:

There will be a special meeting, this Tuesday night, June 8th, at 5 p.m., so the Board can approve a resolution required by the state in order to move forward with our construction grant.

Saturday, June 19th will be our last regular board meeting of the quarter. That meeting starts at 8:30 a.m. 

The July meeting will take place on the 10th of the month (instead of the usual 3rd Saturday) in deference to the Deathride. That meeting also begins at 8:30 a.m.

ANNUAL MEETING

The Annual Meeting will take place on August 7th at Turtle Rock Park, beginning at 10:00 a.m.  Please note: this location is not yet confirmed so please be on the lookout for a future announcement.

We’ve got several years of minutes to approve, and it will be your chance to hear the latest news on our planning grant, and our future construction grant.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, we’ll be able to have a candid conversation about the current and future state of our water needs. IT’S VITAL that you attend the annual meeting.

MOVING FORWARD

In September, we’ll get back to our normal meeting cadence (i.e. the 3rd Saturday of the month at 8:30 a.m.).

MEMBERS CAN ATTEND ANY OF THE VIRTUAL MEETINGS by emailing us at markleevillewatercompany@gmail.com for instructions and login information.
