As a public agency, the Monterey Regional Waste Management District takes seriously the careful stewardship of ratepayer money.  Each year, an outside firm performs an independent audit of our spending, revenue and financial management practices. This audit is initiated following the close of the fiscal year and is reviewed by our Board of Directors.  In the interest of maintaining full transparency of our actions, we make available current and historical Annual Budgets and Audit reports, as well as current compensation information.  Below are reports for the past 3 years.

Additional archived reports are available by contacting our Accounting Department.

The Monterey Regional Waste Management District has earned the Special District Leadership Foundation’s (SDLF) District’s Transparency Certificate of Excellence. This program was created by SDLF in an effort to promote transparency in the operations and governance of special districts to the public and to provide special districts with an opportunity to showcase their efforts in transparency.
The certification process is completed biannually.

Three main subject areas include:

  • Basic Transparency Requirements
  • Website Requirements
  • Outreach Requirements

These are a sampling of all the requirements needed to complete the transparency certificate.

The State of California enacted Senate Bill 272 (SB 272) on October 11, 2015. It requires local agencies to make publicly available a catalog of enterprise systems, upon request and accessible on agency’s Internet Website.

Definition: The SB 272 describes an “Enterprise System,” as a system that “collects, exchanges, and analyzes information that the agency uses” in multiple departments and/or is an original data source.

Requirements: The Enterprise Systems catalog is required to disclose information such as:
System vendor, product, purpose, system custodian, types of data and frequency collected.

Exceptions: Local agencies must disclose Enterprise Systems with the following exceptions:

• Physical access control systems, including employee identification management, video monitoring and other physical control systems.
• Infrastructure and mechanical control systems, including those that control or manage street lights, electrical, natural gas, or water or sewer functions.
• Systems related to 911 dispatch and operation or emergency services.
• Systems that would be restricted from disclosure pursuant to Section 6254.19.
• The specific records that the information system collects, exchanges, or analyzes.

In addition, the bill is not intended to “permit public access to records held by an agency to which access is otherwise restricted by statute or to alter the process for requesting public records.”

If the public interest is served by not disclosing or is best served by disclosure of “system name,
brief title, or identifier of the system,” then the agency may provide these brief details of the system.

Access: Senate Bill 272 (SB 272)

Access: MRWMD Enterprise Systems Catalog
