Wilderness Rim Association’s Board of Trustees has adopted a new budget for the current year (2013-2014) to better serve the needs of the Association. Washington State law requires the Board to present any budget it adopts to the membership for approval at a meeting called for that purpose.
This is a balanced budget proposal that recognizes WRA’s requirement to set aside the Water Surcharge (that is not spent for current Capital Improvements) into the Restricted Water Reserve. This new budget also reflects the Board’s recent decision to reduce costs by having our billing work done by our own staff. An increase in office hours is budgeted to improve customer support for members at our own office. Additional obligations for the financial audit and the Water Reserve and water rate studies approved by the Board for better management of our water system are also included. The cost for these studies will be paid for by a $1.34 surcharge each billing, for the next twelve billings, to distribute the cost fairly among members: $16.08 per member over two years.
The volunteers who are your Board of Trustees are working hard to make good decisions for our Association. We ask your support and participation in the upcoming Membership Meeting and your vote of approval for this budget.
The following announcement will mailed to all WRA Members:
