Board Reports – consideration of matters relating to:

  1. President Gallagher
    1. LAFCO: At the November 17th meeting a resolution was issued honoring Rich Gordon’s service. President Gallagher was elected as Chair of the Commission.

      An item regarding the extension of water service to Caltrans for Devils Slide for fire suppression and their maintenance building caused a bit of controversy. Montara Sanitary & Water appeared and requested that North Coast Water formally make a request to them to serve the maintenance building since it is in their District. LAFCo approved the documentation for the extension by the North Coast Water District. The municipal reviews for Redwood City and San Carlos were continued.
    2. CSDA – Local Chapter: Noting to report.
  2. City of Daly City: No update.
  3. City of Brisbane:
    1. The CAG met on November 16th and the Executive Summary of the Brisbane Baylands Project was distributed. In the discussion of wastewater, it states that wastewater will be treated at an onsite plant. President Gallagher reviewed the two plans consisting of a mix of housing, retail, commercial, entertainment venues, etc. The Summary is going through scoping sessions.

Staff Reports:

  1. Maintenance Director – consideration of matters relating to: monthly report on District operations and maintenance. The monthly report is self explanatory.
    1. The station and system are functioning well. The sump pump downstairs in the pump room had to be replaced.
  2. District Engineer – consideration of matters relating to:
    1. October meter reading data: The monthly pumping rate from the meter and the volume shows continued consistency.
    2. Billing questions: The annual property tax statements have gone out and as is normal, the Engineer received inquiries.
    3. Carlyle Pump Station draw down test: The draw down test results were submitted to San Francisco. The rate of flow from the meter and from the test indicated that they are close and in an acceptable range. The volume on the meter is in thousandths of gallons. When the meter reads 1, it could be anywhere from 1001 to 1999 causing a lack of accuracy. However, the Engineer is comfortable with the result.
    4. SFPUC annual sewer service charge: We have not received the billing which is typically received in late September. The Engineer will follow up with a letter to San Francisco.
  3. District Counsel – consideration of matters relating to:
    1. Counsel reported that Proposition 26 regarding local government fees and assessments passed. It adds another layer of bureaucracy and may have some application to capacity charges and connection fees.
  4. District Clerk – consideration of matters relating to:
    1. LAFCo billing: The increase in this year’s prorata share is based on FY 2007-08 revenues. That year we received $214,912 in connection fees related to the El Rancho Market property.
    2. Interest rates: At this time it appears that there are not any favorable rates available unless the District chose to deposit with an on-line institution.

Old Business:


New Business:

  1. Discussion of connection/entitlement fee and sewer service charge structure.
    This discussion was tabled pending receipt of the annual billing from the SFPUC.
  2. Reports on other matters: no action will be taken.


A motion was made by Director Quinteros, seconded by Director Swanbeck and passed to adjourn the meeting at 7:37 P.M. The next meeting is December 16, 2010 which will begin at 3:30 P.M. with an SB 1234 training session.
