Palmdale, CA – The Palmdale Water District (PWD) Board of Directors voted 5-0 at Monday’s meeting to offer a new rebate of up to $150 for customers who install Weather-based Irrigation Controllers (WBICs), and to increase high-efficiency toilet and clothes washer rebates.

The new rebate for WBICs, also known as smart irrigation controllers, will help residents use their water more efficiently when watering their landscape. The weather-based controllers automatically adjust the irrigation based on the weather of the location, needs of the landscape and soil conditions. It is available for single-family, multi-family and commercial customers.

The Board also approved increasing toilet rebates from $60 up to $100 and clothes washer rebates from $100 up to a maximum of $150. The new amounts are more in line with what other water agencies offer.

Wilk introduces the "Better Budgeting for a Better Future Act"
SACRAMENTO - Senator Scott Wilk, representing the 21st Senate District, announces the introduction of Senate Constitutional Amendment 9 (SCA 9), the "Better Budgeting for a Better Future Act." SCA 9 will create a more efficient and effective budget process by instituting a two-year budget cycle. One year of the two-year legislative session would be devoted to the budget process and the second year would be used for assessment, oversight and evaluation of government agencies and spending.

"Annual budgeting is inefficient, eating up more than half of the year and leaving very little time to determine if the programs we have previously funded even work," said Wilk. "A two year cycle would give everyone time to reassess how our tax dollars are spent before the budget cycle begins again. Departments and agencies would be more accountable because there would be ample time for the Legislature to evaluate the success or failure of a given program."
