The regular meeting of Reclamation District #3 was held August 18, 2011 in the district office.  Present were Chairman Kenny Pucci, Trustees Charlie McDowell, Buddy Fonseca, Aaron Beaver, Secretary Bruce Pisoni, Superintendent Severiano Padilla and Engineer Gilbert Cosio. Absent was Joey Sanchez.  Guests were Osha Meserve and Eric Ringelberg from the Delta Coalition.

Chairman Kenny Pucci opened the regular meeting at 9:00 A.M., Ken Pucci moved and Charlie McDowell seconded to approve the agenda.  Motion passed 4-0-1.  

It was moved by Buddy Fonseca and seconded by Aaron Beaver to approve the Consent Calendar relating to the minutes of the previous meeting and expenditures of $55,996.76 and to issue warrant 2335 in the amount of $50,000 each to replenish cash.  Motion passed 4-0-1.    


OLD BUSINESS:  The Delta Coalition update was moved to the front of the agenda.  Qsha and Eric reported on the status and progress of the Delta Coalition and the obstacles facing the Coalition.  They spoke about the concept of DWR condemning property to be able to do borings and other issues. 

It was moved by Aaron Beaver and seconded by Charlie McDowell to approve the contribution to the Delta Coalition of $.50 per acre which amounts to
Nothing new to report on Phase IV. 

The storage container has not been installed yet. 

Kenny Pucci reported on the website and said that they are now waiting on information to be included. 
ENGINEER’S REPORT: See Memorandum.

The Leary Road project was discussed.  The Cal Trans representative did not show.

SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT:  Severiano Padilla reported on the new mower and expected about 70% of the levees should be able to be mowed.

Delta Pump fixed the switch and is working.

He is not doing much spraying.  Ken Pucci brought up the guard rails and the fact that Cal Trans is paying for the garland to be sprayed along the guard rail, but this is not being done now because of the affect it may have on crops nearby.  He felt Cal Trans should take more responsibility in spraying the grass along the guard rail.  Gilbert is to write a letter to Cal Trans to get them to take care of the guard rail before the next DWR inspection.

NEW BUSINESS:  Resolution 11-05, Delinquencies, was signed by the board at the request of the county to proceed with liens on those properties.

Meeting was adjourned at 11:20 AM.

NEXT MEETING: Thursday, September 15, 2011 @ 9:00 AM, District Office.

Respectfully submitted,

Secretary: Bruce Pisoni
Chairman: Ken Pucci
