Brookshire Municipal Water District a no show for its own teleconference

Posted

The Board of Directors for the Brookshire Municipal Water District experienced failure to launch for a public meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. Thursday evening. An announcement on the water district’s website had instructed residents to call into a telephone conference at that time.

The meeting was cancelled at about 4:45 p.m. according to Brookshire Alderperson Kim Branch who had contacted one member of the water board to inquire about the meeting.

No members of the BMWD’s board nor its representatives logged into the call to advise teleconference attendees that the meeting had been cancelled and as of 5:40 p.m. Thursday no notice of cancellation had been posted to the water district’s website.

Several callers waited on the line for about 45 minutes and expressed interest in discussing unexplained jumps in their water bills over the last month. Increases in meter readings ranged from about 1,400 gallon increases to about 20,000 gallons, teleconference attendees said as they spoke among themselves while waiting for BMWD representatives to log into the meeting.

Phone lines at the water district’s office were not answered when “Katy Times” attempted to reach them and contact information for district management is not published on the district’s website.
