Flood Control Zone District Citizen Advisory Board

Kittitas County, WA - 08/01/2017 - The Kittitas County Board of County Commissioners are soliciting Flood Control Zone Rate Payers to serve on a Citizen Advisory Board to the Flood Control Zone District.

Since formulating the District in 2012, staff has leveraged approximately seven dollars ($7) for every dollar of rate payer funds developing several key river and creek assessments.  It is time to begin implementation of recommended projects.  The Board believes strongly that rate payers should recommend investing priorities for the District.  Working together with District staff, the advisory board will develop the District’s first capital facility plan.  The Board also envisions that the advisory board will help guide the District’s annual work program.  Two rate payer outreach efforts are planned for upper and lower Kittitas County.    Staff will answer questions from prospective Board members and present District accomplishments during both outreach meetings.

The upper County meeting is at the Cle Elum Putnam Centennial Center – Home of the Upper Kittitas County Senior Center (719 East 3rd Street, Cle Elum, WA  98922).  The meeting time is 6 PM to 8 PM and will be held on August 15th, 2017. 

The lower County meeting is at Kittitas County Courthouse, Commissioners Auditorium (205 5th Avenue, Room 109, Ellensburg, WA).  The meeting time is 6 PM to 8 PM and will be held August 17th, 2017.
