  • UPDATE STATION #63:
  •  
    Mike B of GRA is on vacation until July 27th.If GRA can get information to AEC Construction Management, AEC can provide an estimate of the construction costs.The Board will consider holding a special meeting to review the estimate if it comes in before the end of the month.
     
     
     
  • BOARD AND STAFF MEMBERS’ REPORTS: 
  • GM Poggi reminded the Board that she currently prepares the maps and benefit assessments, with the assistance of Karen Kinkle.  It requires a lot of hours, and she has to go to the building department to research missing information.  Assessments are due to the County by August 10the each year.  The Board will need to look for someone to do this job.
  • Director Poggi would like the Board to consider a future benefit assessment with a cost of living adjustment included.  The Amador Contract alone now accounts for nearly 83% of the current benefit assessment. There are two ways to go about adding a measure to the ballot:  1) put on the ballot at a general election, which requires 2/3 of the votes to pass; or 2) a special election for property owners only, which requires approval by 51% of the property owners.
  • Director Biggs informed the Board that at the June 28th JPA meeting, the annual dues were set for $2,000 for Fiscal Year 2017-2018; they are still working to get a lease signed with the owner of the property at Walsh Mountain for the repeater site for Smartsville, and also that Smartsville has an attorney who is working with the County’s legal counsel to create an Addendum to the existing MOU for dispatch services.
