TUMALO IRRIGATION DISTRICT
The Tumalo Irrigation District held an election by mail-in-ballot, on Tuesday,
November 12, 2013, to fill a three-year term on its Board of Directors for Division #1.
The winner of the election was
Steve L. Putnam
In July 2013 a Tumalo Patron raised a concern with our staff over Tumalo Irrigation’s long held (over 50 years) billing practice of ‘rounding up’ to the next highest acre.
Example; if you have 3.1 acres of water, you are billed for 4 acres, so all partial acres are rounded up to the next whole acre. It was explained that even if the District ended the practice and started billing for the exact acre, they would still need to collect the same amount of funds to run the District. The patron insisted that would be fairer as currently we were charging more to people with partial acres.
Our calculations show that, to keep the current funding total and to bill for the exact acreage, the District would be short about $8600. This shortfall could be made up in different ways, most likely split between the account charge and a per acre increase.
After discussions in the August and September 2013 board meetings, the Tumalo Board passed a motion in the September 2013 meeting directing staff to start billing for actual acreage in calculating O&M charges beginning with the 2014 assessments.
The end of the 2013 Irrigation Season will be Tuesday Oct 15th and we will shut the main gates at 12:00 pm on that day.
