YAKIMA – Yakima County Commissioners Kevin Bouchey and Mike Leita at Tuesday’s meeting approved an increase in the budget for the Yakima Groundwater Management Area Advisory Committee.
The budget was increased by $450,000, allowing the group to add components to the advisory committee’s work plan and to extend the agreement with the Department of Ecology.
The Department of Ecology will be the recipient of the additional funding for its work with the advisory committee.
The agreement between the Department of Ecology and Yakima County has been extended from April 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015 as part of the amendment and increased funding approved by the two commissioners present at Tuesday’s meeting.
