After emerging from closed session Board President Tom Van Groningen made the following announcement.
Based on information received from the City and County of San Francisco, the MID Board of Directors directed staff and General Counsel to discontinue further negotiations regarding the proposed sale of water to the City and County of San Francisco.
We’ve filed a Public Information Request for SFPUC’s letter to MID but apparently they refused MID’s request to change the contract’s language regarding the right of first refusal and being first to receive the contracted amount during a drought.
I’ll write in more detail regarding today’s meeting later.
Congratulations for all of those who stood their ground and fought against the proposed sale. Well Done.
