PUBLIC COMMENTS
President Della Sala invited public comment for items not on the agenda.
 Libby Downey, Monterey City Council Member thanked the Authority for working to obtain public funding to decrease costs to the ratepayers, spoke to the notion of hospitality versus residents and thinks the residents will be penalized with the new tier funding. She expressed concern that the Directors were not representing their full City Councils, then requested the Directors help with the source water negotiations, which are holding up progress on water projects.
 Nelson Vega spoke against Ms. Downey's comments indicating that the direction is very clear, to find a source of water to lessen the impact of the water cliff. He spoke in support of the Director’s efforts and actions.
 Tom Rowley spoke representing the MPTPA regarding the May 5, 2014 newsletter outlining their position opposing Measure O and indicated resident are being mislead and given incomplete information regarding the impacts if it passes.
 David Lifland expressed concerned with the proposed plans for the basin including over drafting, plant sizing, storage capacity and the mixing of the different types of water. He is concerned that the capacity is not adequate for what is projected to be produced.
 George Riley requested that the Authority agendize revisiting the contingency plan due to resistance for source water agreements. He expressed concern that if the GWR project is not advanced enough in development it will not assist with a relaxation of the CDO and requested that the Authority elevate its attention to this issue. President Della Sala responded to Ms. Downey’s comments speaking to the transparency efforts of the Authority including agenda notifications, televised meetings, City Council updates
