Manager’s Report:  Dave Robinson reported the canals should be finished with cleaning by the end of November.  Both excavators are being used.  Dave is going to enclose a brochure on encroachments in the next assessment billing.  He also mentioned that the Ryde Hotel is getting permits for some work they are doing.
 
PUBLIC COMMENT:  John & Allison Knickerbocker discussed cracks on their property and indicated their house has sunk.  Dave Robinson and Gilbert Cosio stated they have looked at the property and the DWR has been notified.  There was some discussion about how this has occurred and it was the opinion of board members that it was the Eucalyptus trees along their property that are absorbing the water due to the drought causing the ground to compact. DWR engineers will review the situation and provide their opinion.
 
CHAIRMAN’S REPORT- None.
 
BOARD MEMBER REPORTS:  None.
 
TREASURERS’ REPORT:  Assessment billing is being prepared.
 
ENGINEER’S REPORT: See Memorandum. 
 
OLD BUSINESS: Edwards dock issue was tabled until Gilbert Cosio could contact DCC Engineering about the design.
 
NEW BUSINESS:  There was discussion regarding flooding policy.  Dave is to write up a policy for the Board to review. 
Ditch cleaning was discussed.  Buddy Fonseca had several criticisms concerning the existing process and felt the Board should come up with a policy.  Due to the complexity of the system it will be discussed further at the next meeting.
The Preliminary Budget was presented and items were discussed regarding revenue, expenses and future projects.  Dave Robinson and Gilbert Cosio are to review 2015 projects and cost to make sure there is sufficient funding for 2015 before the budget gets final approval.
 
Meeting was adjourned at 10:25 AM.
 
NEXT MEETING: Thursday December 18, 2014 @ 8:30 AM
 
Respectfully submitted,
