Juli Di Chiro
I. Call to Order
The meeting was called to order at 7:03 p.m. by Juli Di Chiro.
II. Roll Check
All members were present with the exception of Bill Anderson, Ben Bellinson, Kate Kennedy and Gary DeCock.
III. Review Proposed Projects for Unexpended Bond Revenue
The meeting began by a review of the 10 potential bond projects. Gary Sisk reviewed the details of each issue. There was much discussion and questions from CPAC members and Board members about the details of each suggested expenditure. Some members expressed frustration because there were no costs associated with the various projects. Juli Di Chiro explained that she was hoping for some priority before time and money was spent on costing out projects that may or may not be done. CPAC and board members discussed various ways of approaching the work, but the final consensus was that the bulk of the money should be held in reserve. District staff should then complete projects as needs arise. For instance, the water lines in the various buildings are starting to fail. The district should fix those water lines based on their failure rate. Additionally, CPAC members requested some estimates of the cost of the work, particularly around irrigation systems, roofing and water lines. They requested that those rough estimates be brought to the February 1st final CPAC meeting.
Amy Patton distributed a proposal that she wanted to be considered for potential bond revenue. The proposal included installing a 4.1 kilowatt solar system at Bellview and a 10 kilowatt wind energy system at Willow Wind. No decisions were made on adopting this proposal.
IV. Schedule Next Meeting and Confirm Agenda
The CPAC members will meet again on February 1, 2010. One hour of the meeting will be devoted to hearing the final Heery Report on both financial and project information. The balance of the meeting will be a continued discussion on the potential bond project list.
There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 8:46 p.m.
