Monday Check-in: April 27, 2020

The Advisory Board has two critical meetings scheduled over the next week:

  • On Thursday, April 30th at 10:00 am, the Executive Committee will meet to discuss joint recommendations by both the Advisory Board and Authority staffs to help mitigate the impact of MWRA charges to communities in FY21. Click here for the agenda.
  • A week from today on Monday, May 4th at 10:00 am, the full Advisory Board will convene to discuss and vote on these recommendations on the FY21 CEB. Members will also hear about the deferral process for the Community Loans Program. Click here to access the draft agenda.

These meetings are critical and we hope that you will participate remotely. We have limited the agendas to budget-related matters only.

On Wednesday, May 6th at 3:00 pm, there will be an emergency meeting of the MWRA Board of Directors to discuss and vote on Advisory Board and Authority recommendations on the FY21 CEB. They will also discuss and vote on a package of recommendations that defers FY20, 21, and 22 community payments. These actions taken by both agencies will allow communities to know their FY21 assessments and total payments due to MWRA much earlier than normal. Most importantly if both our recommendations to the budget and the loan programs are adopted, communities’ impact from MWRA charges for FY21 will be significantly mitigated at a time when communities desperately need a break.

We hope to have you participate in our upcoming meetings. Please contact us with any questions. Thank you.
