The agenda was unanimously adopted as set.


The General Manager reminded the Board that both the Breakers Café and the Bolinas- Stinson Beach School have a deadline of Friday, October 3, 2014, to submit design evaluations of the capacities of their respective septic systems.


  1. Discussion and possible direction to staff to accept a proposal from Contractor Compliance and Monitoring, Inc. for preparation of a Labor Compliance Program.

    The purpose of this Special Board meeting is for the Board to adopt a Labor Compliance Plan and direct staff to proceed with obtaining approval of said program from the Department of Industrial Relations.

    The General Manager summarized the public comment meeting that he attended on September 30 in Sacramento, which was hosted by the Department of Water Resources (DWR) on grant funding recommendations. The District has been approved to receive approximately $1.249 million in grant money [$937,500 after its 25% matching payment] under the project type "Human Right to Water." The DWR anticipates sending out their final award letters around October 31, 2014. Because funding will be through the Proposition 84 program, the District is required to have in place a Labor Compliance Program, which has been approved by the California Department of Industrial Relations, before any work can begin.

    Patrick Miyaki, the District's counsel, recommended that we engage Deborah Wilder, an attorney and President of Contractor Compliance and Monitoring, Inc. (CCMI), who is an expert in the field of prevailing wages, to assist the District with setting up its Labor Compliance Program to be used for the following four projects: Supplemental Groundwater Supplies, Calles Pipeline Replacement Project, Patios Pipeline Replacement Project, and Water Meter Replacements and In-Line Meters.

    The District will complete the Application to the Director of Industrial Relations for Approval of Awarding Body's Labor Compliance Program for Proposition 84 funded projects only. The cost of the plan and its monitoring is estimated to be $10,000.

    Director Nelsen moved to adopt Resolution No. GB-2014-07, a Resolution Adopting and Implementing Labor Compliance Provisions on Certain Public Works Contracts. Director Zell seconded the motion. The motion was approved unanimously by President Boucke and Directors Nelsen and Zell.


The motion to adjourn the meeting was approved by unanimous vote. The meeting was adjourned at 3:00 p.m.
