PLEASANT HILL -- Due to a tight budget, the Contra Costa County Board of Education may vote Wednesday against the Community Clean Water Initiative.

"This initiative would create an adverse fiscal impact on schools in Contra Costa County at a time when districts are struggling to maintain basic school instruction," the staff report states.

Staff recommends a "no" vote to avoid paying significant annual fees, which would likely increase each year, according to the report. The initiative pays for efforts to keep trash and pollutants from creeks, rivers, reservoirs, the Delta and the bay. Trustees will vote on the initiative at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the County Office of Education board room at 77 Santa Barbara Road in Pleasant Hill. Trustees also expect to discuss their interview and selection process for a representative on the Clayton Valley Charter High School governing board.
