Dear Blue Ridge Neighbors,

The Coconino County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved Resolution 2020-43, establishing the Blue Ridge Domestic Water Improvement District (BRDWID) at the end of their Public Hearing Meeting on Monday, June 29, 2020, at 9:50 PM.

Resolution 2020-43 appointed five interim BRDWID Board of Directors members, John Ritter, Sue Davis, Jack Beale, Ron Krug, and Jeremy Westhall. Once BRDWID is operational, property owners in the District will be entitled to run for the Board of Directors in Coconino County’s four-year election cycle.

BRDWID is a special purpose district under Arizona Revised Statutes Title 48, Chapter 6 County Improvement Districts and will operate as a municipal corporation for all applicable purposes.

Next steps will be to set up rules of operation and begin holding public open meetings while following CDC and Gov. Doug Ducey’s guidelines for nonessential business operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The District will hire an attorney to represent BRDWID when negotiating a fair price for buying The Starlight Water Co. The District will open communication with the Arizona Water Infrastructure Financing Authority (WIFA) to secure financing to launch operations.

We thank you for your support in making this happen!

BRWID Interim Board of Directors
