Yucca Valley’s Hi-Desert Water District board of directors will meet at 4 p.m. today (April 5, 2023). And down the highway in Joshua Tree, the Joshua Basin Water District’s regular meeting begins promptly at 5:30 p.m.
Among the items on today’s Hi-Desert Water District agenda, directors are expected to contract with Washington D.C. lobbyists in hopes of watering down The Western Joshua Tree Conservation Act. The district feels that passage of the Act will afford the tree protections that it finds too burdensome and expensive. The meeting takes place at the district office on the highway at Inca Trail.
And at the Joshua Basin Water District offices on Chollita Road, directors will consider a capital budget amendment to replace a pipeline behind the Joshua Tree Saloon and also consider approving use of the District’s Demonstration Garden for the Morongo Basin Conservation Association’s upcoming Landscape Tour.
Both meetings are open for remote attendance. Instructions for doing so are below:
