April 22, 2019 – The Rowland Water District Board of Directors has voted to add the Hacienda Heights Improvement Association (HHIA) to its current list of active committees. Formed in 1948, the organization is a private, non-profit association with a mission to address community issues and support projects in and around Hacienda Heights. A resident of Hacienda Heights, Director Anthony J. Lima will attend monthly HHIA meetings and report back to the Rowland Water Board.

“The HHIA is a highly respected community organization dedicated to making Hacienda Heights a better place to live,” explains Tom Coleman, Rowland Water District General Manager. “Rowland Water appreciates the opportunity to take an active role in the community conversation through participation in the HHIA.”

The HHIA’s Board of Directors is elected by association members with each Director serving two-year terms. HHIA also operates various committees to address community issues and concerns such as water and utility services, environmental improvement, and public safety and health. Board meetings are open to the public and take place on the third Monday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Hacienda La Puente Unified School District Board Room.

“The HHIA is a natural forum for dialogue and debate in our community,” said Director Lima. “I look forward to attending the meetings and contributing on behalf of Rowland Water District and our customers.”

Rowland Water District Board members attend several other community committees including the Rowland Heights Coordinating Council and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Advisory Council among others.
