The Regular Meeting of the Board of Directors of Crestline Village Water District was called to order by President Olson at 3:12 PM, on Tuesday, July 18, 2000, at the regular meeting place of said Board at its office in Crestline, California.


ROLL CALL: Present were President David Olson, Directors William Huckell, C. N. McGehee, William Valko and Alan Clanin.  Staff members present were Manager/Secretary Norman L. Hunt, Attorney Ronald Van Blarcom, Engineer Fred Hanson, Field Supervisor Robert Jobe, Serviceman Chris Heryford and Office Manager Karl Drew.  Also present were Crestline residents, Thom Walden and Joanne Bolinger-Walden. 


MINUTES OF PREVIOUS MEETING: On a motion by Director McGehee and a second by Director Valko, the Board unanimously approved the minutes of the Adjourned Regular Meeting of June 27, 2000 as submitted.




THOM WALDEN: Mr. Walden presented to the Board a written copy of his questions and comments that he had addressed to the Board at their June 27th meeting.  He also provided some additional information regarding Contractors License requirements to the Board.  Office Manager Drew provided to Mr. Walden a copy of a memo to the Board of Directors that addressed the issues raised by Mr. Walden.  Considerable discussion followed.  Mr. Walden's desire is to be reinstated to the District's approved list of Backflow Prevention Assembly Testers.  Manager Hunt briefly reviewed the history of the District's Cross Connection Program.  He also reviewed the events that lead to Mr. Walden being removed from the District's approved list.  Since Mr. Walden had only provided his information to the District at the Board meeting, Director McGehee felt that additional time was needed to review the information. 


On a motion by Director McGehee and a second Director Valko, the Board tabled this matter to the next Board meeting on the following vote: Ayes - Directors McGehee, Valko and Olson; Noes - Directors Huckell and Clanin.  The Board asked Mr. Walden to meet with Manager Hunt during the next month to try to work out a solution to this matter. 


REPORT ON MORMON SPRINGS VERTICAL WELL: Manager Hunt reported that the power was to be connected to the well site at any time.  Everything else is already connected.  Once power is connected, final water samples can be taken. 


REPORT ON NEW 1 MG CHAMOIS STORAGE FACILITY: Manager Hunt reported that tank roof sheeting was about 95% completed.  The coating contractor should be on the job soon.  The plans for the pump house are being redesigned. 



  • Dart Canyon Road is completed and online, except for final paving. 

  • Crest Forest Drive is completed and online, except for final paving. 

  • Faulhorn is completed and online, except for final paving. 

  • Fiden Court is completed, except for final paving.  This area is changing pressure zones and requires pressure regulators to be installed on the customers' systems.  To expedite the installation of the regulators, the District is considering purchasing and installing the pressure regulators and then back charging the customers for the cost of the regulator. 

  • The main on Moritz Court is installed.  The water sample testing needs to be redone and the job should be completed this week, except for final paving. 

Manager Hunt reported that he is investigating the possibility of paving Faulhorn and Fiden Court with the District's paving machine.  He expects to receive approval from the county to do this.  Hood Corporation has provided the District with a proposal to pave Dart Canyon Road and Crest Forest Drive.  Their proposal is for $.45 per lineal foot.  The District is expecting a proposal from Kanayan Construction.  Their proposal could save the District about $5,000 on Dart Canyon Road. 


The District has received the permit for Hwy 138.  There are some questions regarding some of the permit provisions.  Work should begin on this job in about two weeks. 


PROGRESS REPORT ON FUTURE WELL SITES: Manager Hunt reported that he had met with the consultants, Mark Bulot and Mike Bracher, to review the proposed well site.  After two dry years, they were not happy with the original site that was being reviewed.  They are reviewing another proposed site off of Lake Gregory Drive that they feel is very promising.  They are in the process of pinpointing the exact location of where they would like the well located. 


RESOLUTION NO. 320, ADOPTING A FLEXIBLE BENEFITS PLAN: The Board reviewed the proposed resolution.  The flexible benefits plan will comply with Section 125 of the Internal Revenue Code and will provide a tax savings to employees on their health insurance and life insurance premiums.  On a motion by Director Clanin and a second by Director Huckell, the Board adopted Resolution No. 320, adopting a flexible benefits plan, on the following roll call vote: 


                 AYES:  Directors Olson, McGehee, Huckell, Valko and Clanin

                NOES:  None

            ABSENT:  None

      ABSTAINED:  None  


REQUEST FOR ADJUSTMENT TO CLOSING BILL FOR FORMER TENANT, CHERYL DIETER, ACCOUNT NO. 28-6332-04, 23753 SCENIC DRIVE: The Board reviewed a letter from Mrs. Dieter requesting that she not be held responsible for the closing bill of their former tenants, Carol and Edward Gonzales.  The District's Rules and Regulations for Water Service, the Application for Water Service signed by Mr. and Mrs. Dieter, and the letters sent to Mr. and Mrs. Dieter regarding their tenants are very clear about the responsibility of owners for any unpaid charges of their tenants.  After some discussion, on a motion by Director McGehee and a second by Director Valko, the Board unanimously denied Mrs. Dieter's request. 


CONFERENCE WITH LEGAL COUNSEL – EXISTING LITIGATION; PURSUANT TO SUBDIVISION (a) OF SECTION 54956.9; GABLE vs. COUNTY OF SAN BERNARDINO (San Bernardino Superior Court Case No. SCV 39629): The Board entered into closed session at 4:47 PM to discuss this item.  The Board returned to open session at 5:35 PM and announced that the judge had dismissed the case. 


MANAGER’S REPORT: Field Supervisor Jobe gave a brief report on the leak detection program. 


DIRECTOR’S REPORT: Director McGehee commented on the District's Consumer Confidence Report.  He felt that it is an improvement over prior year Water Quality Reports.  Director McGehee also asked about possibly changing the date of the December meeting as it is very close to Christmas.  The Board meeting dates will be reviewed at the next meeting. 


As there was no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 6:00 PM.  The next Regular Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, August 15, 2000 at 3:00 PM.
