The Fresno Documenters are a group of local residents who are trained and paid to attend and take notes at local public meetings where officials decide how to spend public money and make important decisions about your community. Each week we publish their full notes and create short, easy-to-read briefs analyzing the decisions that were made.

They also discussed a groundwater recharge credit policy, but ultimately decided to continue the discussion at the next board meeting.
