Local Irrigation Districts

Local Irrigation Districts

Based on League's basic principles and positions, the League of Women Voters of Benton and Franklin Counties can encourage local Irrigation Districts to be transparent, encourage their members to be aware of District business and participate in the election of their directors.
Position History: 

Approved as League Position May 2014.

The Local Irrigation District Study Committee has reviewed State and National League positions, reviewed the RCW affecting irrigation districts, heard from local experts in the field, and interviewed several local district staff and/or directors. The committee feels that current League positions are sufficient to cover any action that may be appropriate.

Based on League's basic principles and positions, the League can encourage local Irrigation Districts to be transparent, encourage their members to be aware of District business and participate in the election of their directors. The League can take action in this process by suggesting League members become observers at irrigation district meetings; advertise the date of irrigation district elections in the annual edition of PDF iconThey Represent You (TRY), and provide education to its members and the public regarding irrigation district processes.
