Have a great Thanksgiving holiday!
Bring those hats, put on some sunscreen and bring those chairs too.
In yet another first for MWC, we’ll have our meeting outside this year at the Markleeville Library Park.
The meeting will start at 10:00 a.m. and we’ll have the agenda posted on our Important Documents page prior.
Highlights of the meeting include:
- President’s report by Mary Young
(including an update on the planning grant; and water production and conservation measures)
- Nominations for, and election of, one (1) Director
(Steve Hibbs is retiring after many years of service so let’s give him a
All Members and Qualified Persons are welcome to attend.
We hope to see you there!
As you may know, state law requires that at least 20% of the Company’s Membership Interests (shares) be represented by their owners being present in person at the annual membership meeting before business can be conducted.
Unfortunately only about 10% of the membership were present at this year’s meeting so new Directors couldn’t be elected to the two (2) open seats on the Board. The Board can fill mid-term vacancies and unexpired terms, but only the Members can elect Directors to new full terms.
Members in attendance did nominate two individuals, however, and ballots were mailed to you yesterday. Those individuals are Kris Hartnett and Lloyd Van Doren. You’ll also have the ability to write in another individual’s name if you so choose. We appreciate Kris’ and Lloyd’s willingness to serve and now ask that you vote for at least two (2) people, and return your ballot promptly, so that we can convene the full board at our next meeting.
The ballot, and cover letter being mailed with it, have additional information so please be on the lookout and again, we’d appreciate your fast action in returning your ballot. A self-addressed stamped envelope is included.
Calling All Members! Calling All Members!
Our Annual Meeting is next Saturday, August 3rd, 2019
at 10:00 a.m.
Alpine County Administration Building, Board Room,
99 Water St., Markleeville, CA 96120
Steve Martin, our President, is hanging up his MWC hat! Join us so we can all thank Steve for his 33 years of service.
We’ll also cover some Water Co. business, too, of course, including:
1. Approval of Minutes (Quorum required)
2. Approval of Balance Sheets (Quorum required)
3. President’s Report for 2018-2019 Year (Steve’s last report)
4. Elections of Two (2) Directors (Quorum required)
A quorum of 40 members is essential in many instances as you can see, so it’s very important that members attend.
We’ll post the complete agenda, and other appropriate documents, on our website prior to the meeting. You’ll be able to view them on our Important Documents page. We’ll have hard-copies available as well.
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU NEXT SATURDAY!
Markleeville Water Company Board of Directors
