VIII. ACTION ITEMS
A. WATER CONNECTION/METER REMOVAL: PARCEL 075-203-003 (60 MONTGOMERY) & 075-203-004 (62 MONTGOMERY) JOHN MCDANIEL (Lynn Watson, 10 minutes)
DESCRIPTION: John McDaniel owns two parcels (one acquired subsequent to a January 2013 fire). There is a water meter on each parcel. He has combined the parcels and wants to have the meter pulled on one of the lots. He also wants to erase the Direct Charge assessment and water connection fees on the lot he has merged on the theory that he has only one lot. District Counsel Manwell advised against allowing this practice at the September meeting. He informed the Board that the District has an underlying obligation, under the law, to repay the note obligations of the District. The repayment ability was established when the assessments and service charges were levied and the water system built. The very real risk to the District and its ratepayers is that those left last standing will pay more than their fair share of the costs of the system. Further research has been conducted in light of the financial impact to parcel owners/customers remaining in the system, water code requirements and District Counsel research.
PROPOSED ACTION: The Board may/may not take action regarding water connections at 60 Montgomery and 62 Montgomery.
B. WATER CUSTOMER 118 (ST. DOROTHY’S REST) DISPUTED BILLING (St. Dorothy Staff, 5 minutes)
DESCRIPTION: St. Dorothy’s has written to dispute a billing of $777.05 from November 2016 (letter attached). At the December meeting, the Board requested clarification of adjustment history for this account.
PROPOSED ACTION: The Board may/may not approve a credit for a disputed water billing.
C. WATER CUSTOMER 252 (MARK & CHERYL ALLEN) 20 Mission Street (Customer email, 5 minutes)
DESCRIPTION: Mr. Allen arrived home from a vacation and discovered a leak in a broken pipe. He does not know how long it was leaking; however, has had it repaired and there should be no further problems. The leak was 34,900 gallons and $718 worth of water. The normal use is about 1,500 gallons.
PROPOSED ACTION: The Board may/may not approve a leak adjustment for this customer.
D. POST OFFICE REPAIRS AND CLOSURE (Lynn Watson, 10 minutes)
DESCRIPTION: The Camp Meeker Post Office has been closed for repairs with no re-opening date. The Board will discuss and decide upon further action.
PROPOSED ACTION: The Board may/may not take further action with respect to the Post Office closure.
E. ANNUAL PLANNING SESSION DATE (Staff, 5 minutes)
DESCRIPTION: The District’s CPA, Sue Goranson, recommended during the audit process that the Board consider holding an annual planning session to establish anticipated projects and develop budgetary estimates.
PROPOSED ACTION: The Board may/may not choose a date for an annual planning session.
F. WATER OPERATIONS FUNDING (Cathie Anderson, 5 minutes)
