Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) Board Meeting
May 5, 2022
Commission McGowan opened the meeting by calling for the deletion of the proposed amendment to the Affirmative Action Ordinance without discussion until the Board holds a Study Session on the recent Disparity Report. No date has been set. All nine commissioners voted to delete without discussion. Agenda Item #1 022-006.)
Only two other items were pulled for discussion. Both because the market rate for chemicals, in this case Sodium Hypochlorite and Magnesium Chloride, is widely fluctuating and the vendors do not want to commit to more than a year’s rate. Hence, they will have the opportunity to rebid the rate for year two of the contract. After an explanation that during each contract year, the rate would remain the same regardless of market conditions, the items were returned to the agenda. (Agenda Items #13 22-0397 and #17 22-0425.)
All agenda items were approved with the exception of Item #1 above and two others that were deleted by the Executive Director without discussion.
There were no Stormwater Management contracts on the agenda. No Executive Session was held and no New Business was offered
