Additional Clean Water Fund Public Comment Period: Responses Due October 31, 2017

The Clean Water Fund Board is holding a third public comment period before finalizing its fiscal year 2019 budget recommendation. This public comment period only focuses on $2.3 million additional bond premium funds, made available by Vermont's sale of general obligation bonds. The Board is proposing to support innovative projects with these funds, summarized in Table 10 of the draft Vermont Clean Water Fund fiscal year 2019 budget (http://dec.vermont.gov/sites/dec/files/wsm/erp/docs/2017-10-11_DRAFT_FY19_CWFCapitalAllocationsTable10.pdf).

Help the Board prioritize these projects by completing this online questionnaire (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CBK72K9). The Board will use the results of this questionnaire to finalize its budget recommendation during its November 6, 2017 meeting (open to the public - see meeting details below). Please see the Clean Water Fund Budget Process webpage (http://dec.vermont.gov/watershed/cwi/cwf/budget-process) for more information.

The deadline to complete the online questionnaire (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CBK72K9) is 4:30 pm, Tuesday, October 31, 2017.

If you have any questions, or if you need a hard copy of the questionnaire to respond, please contact Emily Bird (emily.bird@vermont.gov) at 802-490-4083. Mailed comments must be postmarked by Tuesday, October 31, 2017 and sent to:
