2.                  Approve Property Management Contract

After extended discussion regarding a proposed contract, the Committee decided to recommend to the full Board an interim extension of the now-expired contract to June 30, 2002 with the understanding the Committee and Ms. Logan will work toward a revised contract for action at the July Regular Board Meeting.

 

 

3.                  Trackage Rights in Healdsburg Effluent Line Construction

Ms. Logan reported an immediate need for action at the May 15 Regular Board Meeting and requested placement of this issue on the Agenda because the contract wants to deliver pipe to the construction site via rail.

Ms. Logan reported this item is also urgent and will request it be placed on May’s Agenda.
