The Fresno Documenters program is a network of community members who we train and pay to attend and document local government meetings. Each week, they cover six to 12 public meetings spanning Fresno, Madera, Kings and Tulare counties. Here are their most recent full meeting notes, with all the details!

Madera County Supervisors vote against excess groundwater penalties, delay decision on groundwater recharge credit (1/24/23)

During the Jan. 24 special meeting, the Madera Board of Supervisors voted (3-2) against imposing higher penalties on those who extract groundwater over an allocation in the Chowchilla, Delta-Mendota, and Madera Subbasins. They also discussed a groundwater recharge credit policy, but ultimately decided to continue the discussion at the next board meeting.
