CoCoTax invites you to attend an in-person Luncheon Meeting on January 26, 2024 at 11:45am at DENNY’S Restaurant 1313 Willow Pass Road, Concord. Please register in advance on the CoCoTax website where you can pay online or bring cash or check and pay at the door. $25 for members, $30 for guests.  As we enter into a busy election year, the measures facing local taxpayers in 2024 are daunting. The result of actions of government are causing nearly every public entity to face deficits, and the legislative approach to solving the deficit is to look for revenue measures, lowering thresholds for passage of bonds and taxes. We will be reviewing local measures and statewide measures that will be on the March 5th Primary and the November 5th General elections.

Issues of conservation, storage and conveyance of water are no less important and the snow level is only 30% of normal as of January 5th..  How our water agencies deal with these problems can be costly.

Introducing our January 26, 2024 Luncheon speaker John Burgh

John Burgh has served on the Contra Costa Water District Board of Directors since 2004, representing Pleasant Hill, Martinez, Port Costa and a portion of Concord.

He has a total of 43 years of experience in the administration, project management and design of public works projects. For 30 years of his career, he worked for an environmental engineering consulting firm.

With continuing drought conditions in California and state-wide competition for northern California water, protecting a supply of water for residents, businesses and industry of Contra Costa County is a daunting responsibility. His concerns include rate increases and district enforcement measures to insure the efficient and responsible use of water, coupled with the need for financing major projects to insure a safe and efficient delivery of water.

John holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Notre Dame and a Master’s Degree in Management from the University of New Mexico. He is a registered civil engineer in California.
