Metro Water District

Finance Oversight Committee

In 2010, the Board of Directors decided to add additional responsibilities to the Bond Oversight Committee and reconstitute that committee as the Finance Oversight Committee. The Finance Oversight Committee is asked to review and advise the Board of Directors regarding the District's long-range financial planning including the rate structure as well as to continue to review the progress of the Capital Improvement Program and the bonds and agreements issued to finance those projects. The Finance Oversight Committee meets periodically throughout the financial cycle and makes recommendations to the Board regarding changes to the rate structure. The Committee is comprised of residents of the District.

Detailed information about FOC meetings can be found here.
