The ASADA Has a Date for the Water Board Elections
By Fritz Elmendorf

The Water Board (ASADA) for the beaches of Nosara has scheduled its annual assembly meeting and election of Board of Directors for May 26.

Only members are allowed to vote: new membership applications are required for all those who have water meters. To be members, water meter holders must certify their status by submitting a Personeria Juridica and the Certification Bienes Immuebles, which can be provided by the water board attorney Andres Gonzales for $30.

Applications for membership and information on filing proxies for those who cannot be present to vote are available at the water board office or from the current water board president Rick Walker.

At the last general assembly of the ASADA, regulatory officials determined that charter documents for the board were not correctly drafted, and therefore previous actions by the board were not legal.
As a result of that legal challenge, the original board of the ASADA was the only board with legal standing, and they met April 9 and determined the date for the new election.

Also at play is a determination by regulatory authorities that the rate structure for water usage is not valid, and that only a much lower rate structure in place for other ASADAs in Costa Rica is authorized. The board cannot begin its rate change request until a new board is elected and registered.

The new board will have legal standing to apply for a rate structure that they believe is necessary to meet the unique needs of the neighborhoods of Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada – the American Project.
