COMB Budget

The COMB Operating Budget (Budget) provides the foundation for implementing critical infrastructure improvement projects necessary to operate and maintain the Cachuma Project Transferred Project Works.  In addition, the Budget supports the work associated with implementation of the Fish Management Plan and the 2000 Cachuma Project Biological Opinion. The Budget document provides detailed information about the Cachuma Operation and Maintenance Board (COMB) revenue and expenditure forecast in the coming year and addresses the main points and major decisions made in compiling the Budget.  The Budget provides the financial plan required to implement our mission and will enable staff to utilize the resources needed to achieve our goals.

Adoption of the Budget is one of the most important aspects taken by the Board of Directors.  The Budget is COMB’s financial work plan, translated in expenditures, supported by revenues.  It establishes the direction for the near term, and to the extent the decisions have continuing implications, it establishes a long term course as well.  The Budget is a projection of revenues and expenditures needed for operation, maintenance, administration, infrastructure and habitat improvements associated with providing an essential water supply to our Member Agencies.

COMB's fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30th. For more information and to view recent District Budgets, select the links below.
