2010 Meeting Minutes BACK TO MINUTES

June Board Meeting
Thursday, June 17, 2010



PO BOX 104
RYDE, CA 95680


The regular meeting of Reclamation District #3 was held June 17, 2010 in the district office. Present were Chairman Ken Pucci, Trustees Buddy Fonseca, Charlie McDowell, Joey Sanchez, Aaron Beaver, Secretary Bruce Pisoni, Superintendent Severiano Padilla and Engineer Gilbert Cosio and attorney Joe Schofield. Guest was Dick Ennis.
Chairman Ken Pucci opened the regular meeting at 9:00 A.M., Buddy Fonseca moved and Charlie McDowell seconded to approve the agenda. Motion passed 5-0-0.

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 $31,813.66. Treasurer reported that the delinquencies sent to the county will be sold by the County Treasurer July 1, 2010. Motion passed 5-0-0.


OLD BUSINESS: Joe Schofield reported on Phase IV information and stated that we are waiting for information from the State. Ken Pucci commented on the time it was taking to get this taken care of.

Joey Sanchez reported on the record storage container. He stated that we may be able to get one for free from Sheldon Gas with shelves already inside. He will check into.

The solar energy proposal was discussed. Dick Ennis reported that he thought the Nations proposal was a good presentation, but certain items were not clear such as customer, meter and demand charges. It appears that due to the type of project the District would have to get 3 bids at prevailing wage, which would probably make the project prohibitive. There was much discussion on what the next steps should be. It was recommended to appoint a 2-man committee to review the options and report back to the board, this item was tabled due to lack of a chairman for the committee. It was moved by Buddy Fonseca and seconded by Charlie McDowell to spend up to $10k for continued due diligence on the project to gather more information. Motion passed 4-1(Ken)-0.

ENGINEER’S REPORT: See Memorandum.

SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT: Severiano Padilla stated that he has only had 1 burn day and spraying has stopped due to the wind.

NEW BUSINESS: It was moved to approve Resolution 10-4 regarding the application for the 2010-11 Subventions. Roll call vote indicated all aye votes.

Water Diversion reporting was discussed and it was decided to have the Secretary send out to all landowners the new requirements with a copy of the reporting form for reporting to the state.

Joe Schofield requested the District pay for the surveying of the superintendent’s house property for Jill Callis. Payment was approved by the Board.

The Closed Session was tabled.

Meeting was adjourned at 11:45 AM.
