The Idyllwild Water District Board of Directors held an unusual morning meeting Monday, Nov. 19.
The agenda for the special meeting identified two potential litigation matters. One stated, “… the District is deciding whether to initiate litigation.”
The second item stated that the district was concerned that it had significant exposure to litigation …” on issues relating to the Oakwood water line.
After the meeting, President Dr. Charles “Chip” Schelly said no litigation will be initiated and some district rules would be “updated” at the regular board meeting Wednesday evening, Nov. 21.
During the public portion of the meeting, Schelly also confirmed that both litigation matters involved the same situation — the Oakwood pipeline project. The issue involves a replacement pipeline along Oakwood Street, north of Pine Crest Avenue and the trade of new meters for the pipeline’s installation.
