Today, September 11, 2020, at 1:30 PM we will be holding a small ceremony to recognize our 2019 service and special award recipients since our in-person annual banquet was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This date seemed to be fitting to recognize our first responders who serve our community in a selfless manner each and every day.  

The event will be streamed LIVE via the link below and a recording will be made available after the event.

Interruption of Regular Board of Commissioners Meeting

posted Jun 11, 2020, 4:16 PM by Mitch Nolze

We apologize for the interruption and technical difficulty during the regular Board of Commissioners meeting.  A power failure at one of the stations caused a problem with the live event feed.  It is back up and running and no part of the meeting was conducted without the public feed.

However, public comments are not being recorded.  If you have public comments you would like to include for this meeting or for the commission to be aware of, please email those comments to info@swrfa.org and state your full name and address in the email.

We are sorry for any inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.
