REGULAR MEETING
 
Chairman Fonseca opened the regular meeting at 9:00 A.M
The regular meeting of Reclamation District #3 was held July 23, 2015 at 14160 Grove St, Walnut Grove.  Present were Trustees Buddy Fonseca, Jason Culbertson, Joey Sanchez, and Aaron Beaver, engineer Gilbert Cosio (left @ 10:30am) and General Manager Dave Robinson and Secretary Bruce Pisoni.  Guest Les Lyman. 
    
Manager’s Report:  David Robinson reported that the mowing is being done and 2 part time employees have been hired.  The rotary mower is having trouble with bearing replacement.  They will begin mowing Hwy 160, but need CHP escorts.  They will begin with the excavator ditch cleaning in late August and is looking into renting a extra excavator at a cost $8,750 per month.
            Dave spoke to Jaime Rodriguez about cattle in the canal and that he needs to put his fence back up.
            The Lopes canal needs to be cleaned and will be done later.
            Dave is looking into an ATV that could be converted to spray.  He thinks the Polaris 6 wheel would be best even though it costs about $2,000 more than the Kubota and John Deere.  The total cost should be $14,000 for the ATV, $1,000 for the sprayer and $1,500 for a trailer to move the ATV.
            Dave has contacted the beaver trapper to remove a beaver nest in the levee behind Dagmars.
            Aaron stated he had identified wet areas and would mark a map for the next meeting.
