BOURIKAS RESIGNS FROM TWENTYNINE PALMS WATER BOARD

Twentynine Palms Water District Board member Bo Bourikas announced he was resigning at the end of last night’s Board meeting. Bourikas said he was resigning due to personal reasons and that last night’s meeting would be his last. The meeting focused on new water conservation restrictions. Due to the statewide drought, the state has issued mandatory water restrictions, prohibiting water runoff down sidewalks and driveways, washing vehicles without a shut-off nozzle, and running fountains without a re-circulating system. Additional restrictions included the use of water to wash down buildings unless there is an emergency, and restricting water to run or accumulate in gutters. The board approved the ordinance and it will be in place for the next 270 days. After that, the ordinance will be reviewed and possibly be cancelled, extended, or made permanent by the state. While the state gave the District power to fine anyone who violates the restrictions, the Water District does not wish to do so unless many warnings have already been issued to the person violating the ordinance. For information about the restrictions, call the Twentynine Palms Water District at 760-367-7546.
