Thanks for the info. I read this particular deal got started in 2011. The mind boggles at just what is happening out there.
It was one grouchy gentleman in his Coldwell Banker jacket that was argumentative and abrasive against other attendees. The recall group are united in their efforts to have an open, transparent and fiscally responsible community PSWID board elected as soon as possible.
Thanks Tom that is a lot of interesting information. Appreciate you taking the time to educate us :-)
Unfortunately Supervisor Martin is now unable to make the original December meeting date due to a scheduling issue. She was kind enough to send us an email, part of which is shown below.
" County Management today has scheduled a PSWID Board of Directors' meeting for Thursday, January 16, 2014 (which they understand would be the date for the next regularly scheduled PSWID BofD Meeting) at the Pine Cultural Hall from 5pm to 8pm where the full Board with Management will attend. A primary purpose of that meeting will be to serve as an information sharing and listening session for the full Board and Management.
Would you please share this with your group and thank them for their patience?
Thanks, again -
How about people from other countries? Tom I would hope that Lyall Grant was fair and when it came to the British "wind bags" that he turned off the mike switch for them as well :-)
(Slang. A talkative person who communicates nothing of substance or interest.)
Come to that how many of us would like a kill switch to turn off all the cell phones when we are trying to enjoy a nice meal out?

Per Resolution No. 13-11-07, the Gila County Board of Supervisors accepted the resignations of five (5) governing board members of the Pine Strawberry Water Improvement District (PSWID); revoking the authority of the PSWID; naming the Gila County Board of Supervisors as the Board of Directors for the PSWID; and reserving the authority to call for new elections for the PSWID.
A Pine - Strawberry Community Meeting is to be held on Thursday December 19, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. The location is the Pine Cultural Hall.
Tommie Cline Martin, Gila County District 1 Supervisor will be officiating the meeting which is being held per the public's request.
Thanks Deb :-)
Okay the links at the bottom of Pete Aleshire article all ran into one. I will try again
Pine water doubles taxes, boosts water rate 33%
P-S will start drilling for water near Milk Ranch Well
Milk Ranch Well purchase gets final approval
Five Pine-Strawberry board members resign
Milk Ranch Well needs filter after all
Deb, I take it that those interested can "miru-miru" look at what was written in Pete Aleshire article and use it as a spring board to ascertain for themselves what happened. The public may ask themselves why did the previous Chairman Mr. Haney and Tetra Tech resign? Was it because they expressed concerns over Milk Ranch Well #1? Then read on as to what subsequently happened under new PSWID regime and who else among the community and board directly benefited. Why was an investigation started by the Arizona Auditor Generals office? Were the public being given complete information, or as is the case with the 38 brand new meters leaking, only told what the board decided they should know. At the end of the April 17, 2012 article there are additional links referenced, and when those are read then more follow and so on.
Lastly did 5 members of the PSWID board violate open meeting law by all resigning at the same time the very next day following a public meeting? As Tom indicated in his post there is a lot to untangle.
Yes Pat you do ask good questions. I would imagine that caused quite a stir in Gilbert!
Bernice, Ric Hawthorne calculated that just those 38 meters alone counted for half of the annual water loss stated, not the full 12.5 million gallons. The vast majority of the meters are 5/8" (residential) because that is what most people have and the specs. are clearly written. Company provides an 800 number for technical support.
