CRR SPECIAL ROAD DISTRICT (SRD) MEETING
Today’s SRD Meeting was called to Order by SRD Chair Sue Haley at 10:00 AM and adjourned about 10:30 AM.
All SRD Commissioners present-Ann House and Dana Pierce along Ranch Director Sarah Woolverton.
Ranch Manager Judy Lapora, Ranch VP Ara Erdekian and Water Company General Manager Frank Day attended via zoom.
HOT TOPIC-Sundown Canyon Road
“THE TOPIC NEEDS TO BE CLOSED”
Haley’s Opening Remarks:
“As you know I sent a letter out to all the residents living on Sundown Canyon, asking for their suggestions for ways to improve safety on that road.
I invited all, as many as wished to come to this meeting today to offer their suggestions. Before I open that discussion, I’d like to report that last week I met with High Desert Aggregate & Paving out on Sundown Canyon Road and I asked them to put together a cost estimate for building the road with the water vault is out over the slope as opposed to moving the water vault…”
Ms. Haley continued explaining High Desert’s option to “contain the road-to hold the road up” and added:
“If the SRD, being a public agency, built this structure, we would have to pay prevailing wage, so that cost would be four hundred twenty-seven thousand nine hundred fifty- $427,950.”
“If the Water Company decided to build this portion of the road around the vault, you could reduce that cost by about 30%…”
Haley read a couple of emails into the record that included one from former Ranch Director Mark Schneider.
“Two or three people, I should say, offered suggestions for safety improvements on the road and one of them was Mark Schneider.
He would like to see two things happen. He would like it plowed more often which Jordan has trouble keeping up with the roads he’s got, cinders would help he said…”
Chair Haley then invited Sundown Canyon residents in attendance to step up to the podium. Two spoke and neither felt it necessary to address the Water Vault issue.
