Fact: PWSD began discussions about the Proposed 2024 budget during Board meetings beginning in September 2023. PWSD also held two formal public budget hearings in October and November 2023. Each of the discussions and the hearing dates were listed in the Board agendas. The Board agendas are always posted the week before a meeting, in our HQ building and on our website, per Colorado open meetings laws.
Additionally, details about the proposed budget and any changes were promoted on PWSD’s social media channels to alert customers to the opportunity to publicly comment on them.
Following their confirmation, PWSD included an article about the changes and the out-of-pocket impacts to our customers in our quarterly customer email in December 2023.
