Supervisor District: 5 - Bill Horn
Description: The King Ranch House is an important early 20th Century example of a Southern California Ranch style architecture built as a private residence for the King family, important leaders in the development of Escondido's citrus agricultural industry in the County during the depression through World War II. Edwin and Jane King invested their savings from Hollywood film production into a 23-acre citrus orchard. This project is being brought to the HSB for historic landmarking and for participation in the Mills Act contract.
The following DISCUSSION items have been placed on the agenda:
Description: The Committee for the Historical Society Representatives from San Diego County on the True Location of Warner's Ranch House (the Committee) is requesting that the San Diego County Historic Site Board review the status of the “presently erroneously named” Warner-Carrillo Ranch House historical site. The ranch house is within the Vista Irrigation property. The Committee is requesting that the Board recommend an administrative review and provide specific recommendations regarding this project. The Committee will be represented at the meeting by Chairman George Ellis.
Description: Morris & Kathryn Nunn recently purchased this potentially significant 1926 Lilian Rice home. Von Marie May, Historical Consultant, on behalf of owners, determined through preliminary research that alterations were made by previous owners that may jeopardize historic designation. The purpose of this item is to discuss and obtain direction from HSB members as to appropriate remedies for these alterations, under the Secretary of the Interior's Standards and Guidelines.
The following PRESENTATION will be given:
o Susan Hector, Principal Archaeologist, Principal and Senior Archaeologist, ASM Affiliates, Inc., gave a presentation on PRESERVING CULTURAL LANDSCAPES. San Diego County is rich in 18,000 prehistoric and historic archaeological sites, such as Rancho Guejito, Tulloch Ranch (near Cuyamaca Lake), and Long Potrero (near Tecate). Identifying evidence of historic and prehistoric human use of a landscape - the cultural landscape-- is as important to management of a nature preserve as identification of sensitive plants and animals, as human beings have always been an integral part of the ecology.

San Diego County Water Authority
Legal Notice

Notice is hereby given that the Board of Directors of the San Diego County Water Authority Administrative and Finance Committee will hold a public hearing at June 22, 2006, at 9:00 a.m., at its offices located at 4677 Overland Avenue, San Diego, CA 92123.
The purpose of the hearing will be:
A. To hear objections, protests or comments from the public about its Resolution No. 2006-15 which proposes continuing a Water Standby Availability Charge of $10 per acre or per parcel, whichever is greater, on all land lying within the boundaries of the Authority for Fiscal Year 2006-2007, which charge is a continuation of the Water Standby Availability Charge in the amount fixed and levied prior to November 6, 1996, and annually each year thereafter.
B. To hear objections, protests or comments from the public about its proposed water rates and charges consisting of the following:
Melded Untreated M&I Supply Rate. For Calendar Year 2007, the Melded Untreated Municipal and Industrial Supply Rate will be set at $365/AF to recover the costs of purchasing Tier 1 water from MWD, water purchases from IID, and may include other costs specifically associated with the acquisition of the IID supply source, cost recovery for supply costs previously incurred but not charged, etc.
Melded M&I Treatment Rate. For Calendar Year 2007 the Melded Municipal and Industrial Treatment Rate will be set at $147/AF to recover the costs of treating water for the Water Authority and may include costs of purchasing treated water from MWD and other treatment sources, and may recover certain other costs associated with the delivery of treated water.
Replenishment Rate. For 2007, the untreated replenishment water rate remains at its current level of $238/AF. The treated replenishment water rate will increase from its current level of $335/AF to $360/AF, reflecting MWD's increase in treatment costs.
Agricultural Water Rate. For 2007, the untreated agricultural water rate will remain bundled and continue at its current level of $241/AF. The treated agricultural water rate will increase from $339/AF to $364/AF, consistent with the increase in treatment costs.
Capacity Reservation Charge. For 2006, the Capacity Reservation Charge is $6,800 per cubic foot second (cfs) of maximum daily flow requested by a MWD member agency. The Capacity Reservation Charge is a fixed charge levied on an agency's maximum daily flows over the three previous fiscal years. It recovers the cost of providing peak capacity within the distribution system, and is designed to encourage member agencies to shift demands and avoid placing large daily peaks on the MWD system during the summer months. Daily flow measured between May 1 and September 30 for purposes of billing the Capacity Reservation Charge will include deliveries (except long-term seasonal storage deliveries) made by MWD to a member agency or member agency customer including water transfers, exchanges and agricultural deliveries. As part of a separate surface storage operating agreement to manage seasonal peaking, the Authority is expected to reserve its full available capacity. The Capacity Reservation Charge will be set at $8,812,800. The Authority's Board has directed that the Capacity Reservation Charge will be recovered proportionally based on a five-year rolling average of member agency flows during coincident peak weeks.

Readiness-to-Serve Charge. MWD's Readiness-to-Serve Charge differs from the other MWD charges in that it is set on a Fiscal Year basis. The total Readiness-to-Serve Charge will remain at $80 million for Fiscal Year 2006-2007. The Authority's share is set at $21,777,970. After credits from the MWD Standby Charge, and administrative costs, the net Authority share is $9,370,992. MWD's Readiness-to-Serve Charge will recover costs associated with standby and peak conveyance capacity and system emergency storage capacity. The Readiness-to-Serve Charge will be allocated among MWD member agencies on the basis of each agency's ten-year rolling average of firm demands (including water transfers and exchanges conveyed through system capacity). This allocation will be revised each year. Revenues equal to the amount of Standby Charges will continue to be credited against the member agency's Readiness-to-Serve Charge obligation unless a change is requested by the member agency. The Board has directed that the Authority's Readiness-to-Serve Charge will be passed through proportionally to member agencies on the basis of each agency's ten-year rolling average of firm demands (including water transfers and exchanges conveyed through system capacity).
By Order of the Board of Directors of the San Diego County Water Authority
Doria F. Lore, Clerk of the Board

PASSED, APPROVED AND ADOPTED, this 25th day of May 2006 by the following vote:
AYES: Arant, Bowersox, Croucher, Dailey, Dixon, Ferguson, Knutson, Lewanski, Lewinger, Lewis, Linden, Loveland, Martin, Morrison, Muir Parker, Pocklington, Rhinerson, Rogers, Saunders, Steiner, Thompson, Tu, Watton, Williams, and Wornham.
