Published FRB March 31,2010 EQSD director Steve Peay asked Morris "It's taken this long to come up with these numbers or these differences? I mean this is a long time." Morris told him the techni- cal. changes weren't the reason for the extended length of the process. "Well, I think what we're trying to do now is to narrow down what are the final things we really need to look at." "I think in a bigger picture the Board of Supervisors have some concerns with the tax exchange, the substance of it, that was negotiated, but they've looked at that; they've looked at the resolu- tion they adopted in January of last year; and they've decided that was the tax exchange agreement and that's what we need to use and go forward." "So I think that's one thing we've put aside as something as a point of controversy." EQSD Manager Mary Henrici seemed pleased, "Well that's a major thing right there." Peay asked how much longer the completion of the transfer of powers would take. After more discussion Morris told him the county was ready to proceed with the sign-up for the Pacific Gas and Electric bills for the lighting. Henrici said the district hadn't been responsible for the lighting since January according to the state, but continued to pay the bills rather than turn off the lights. She later added the district would ask the Board of Super- visors for help in paying those bills, as it had for years. The tax money associated with the street lighting pow- ers doesn't provide enough funds to pay for the entire energy bill. Public Works Director Bob Perreault told the board the key point was the super- visors decided to go forward with the transaction, mean- ing EQSD had won the battle. He said the supervisors passed the resolution approv- ing the transaction in January, when two new supervisors had just been seated, including Quincy representative Lori Simpson. He continued, "It was on the consent agenda. It didn't get onto the agenda through me as the manager of the QLD and in essence, you know, there's a regret that that document wasn't better scrutinized at the time." Perreault added, "If that resolution was on today's agenda and the existing board members knew what they know today I don't [think] it would have been accepted." He told Peay these were the reasons it took so long for the process to be completed; the supervisors were trying to find out if they could reason- ably reverse their decision. He said the QLD would have to do a Proposition 218 vote soon to try to get enough funds to cover the lighting, as it now had to deal with the problem of insufficient tax revenue. Henrici asked if the LAFCo changes had to occur before the PG&E billing could be transferred. Morris told her that wasn't the case; he and Perreault agreed they could go with an EQSD representative and make the transfer before April 1. The EQSD passed a motion to have staff work with Perreault to transfer the lighting bill before April 1, and to cooperate in correct- ing the LAFCo resolution so it matched th e original intent of both parties and corrected the erroneous numbers. EQSD looks at conservation rates Joshua Sebold Staff Writer jsebold@plumasnews.com The East Quincy Service District board of directors told engineer Dan Bastian and manager Mary Henrici to prepare a proposal for a conservation-minded rate structure in an early March meeting. The topic came up when Bastian told the board it was time for the annual rate review. The engineer said he'd heard a lot of talk of the need for conservation from the board recently and wanted to brief them on some of the pros and cons of changing the rate structure. Bastian told the board the district had done very well in the past with its system of using historical data to set rates. The engineer was obviously proud of his work devising the rate structure each year, as EQSD had just the right amount of funds last year to take advantage of cheap con- struction prices in the down economy, completing several capital improvement projects and filling all major service gaps in the district. Bastian said the district never ran into financial prob- lems with its current system and also didn't find itself with a surplus of funds, as service districts aren't allowed to make a profit. Looking to the future he told the board their entity was currently small enough that it didn't have to comply with the state water regula- tion that required all pro- viders to reduce consumption by 20 percent by the year 2020, but added the district would be over the limit and have to comply if it con- solidated with Quincy Community Service District. Districts that don't comply with the new regulations will be ineligible to receive state funds like grants, which many people think will be necessary to replace the QCSD wastewater treatment plant. Bastian said the current rate structure had a small penalty when customers crossed a certain level of water use, but basically provided little reward for conservation. He explained the downside of conservation rates was that they could be more volatile and harder to predict in terms of revenue, because people change their con- sumption habits when using large amounts of water re- sults in a penalty and smaller charges are applied to those who conserve. EQSD board chairman Howard Hughes said there must be some other entities that use an "inclining block rate," which the district could look to as a guide. Henrici agreed that method would be the best if the board wished to encourage conser- vation. An inclining block rate es- sentially increases the price per so many gallons as the amount of consumption goes up. A customer's second thousand gallons might be more expensive than the first thousand, for example. Bastian told the board he hadn't constructed that type of rate structure before, but said it wasn't rocket science. Henrici and Bastian agreed to bring a proposal back to the board at the next meeting. Plumas Bank changes leadership in direction and leadership so that we can proactively man- age this institution through this difficult time. On behalf of the board of directors, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Doug Biddle for his many years of service to Plumas Bank and the leader- ship he provided over the years. We wish Doug and his family well." He continued, "Effective im- mediately, Andrew J. Ryback Plumas Bancorp, a bank holding company and the par- ent company of Plumas Bank, announced the separation of employment of Douglas N. Biddle effective March'26. Biddle had formerly been the company's president and chief executive officer. Plumas Bank's chairman of the board Daniel E. West commented, "These challenges have required that we evaluate the need for strategic changes will be the interim president and chief executive officer of Plumas Bancorp and Plumas Bank. We look forward to working with Andy and with the executive team to move the company onward." Ryback responded, "I am honored to have the opportu- nity to serve as the interim president of Plumas Bancorp and Plumas Bank and look forward to helping guide this institution through this chal- lenging time. Please be as- sured that the entire executive team is fully committed to our customers, employees and shareholders. We will work hard to get Plumas Bank back on track to its tradition of profitability and growth." Ryback joined Plumas Bank in 2001. In March 2005 he was appointed executive vice pres- ident and chief financial officer of Plumas Bancorp and Plumas Bank. Prior to joining the bank, Ryback held the position of vice president/ controller for Placer Sierra Bank in Auburn, California. Ryback received his Bachelor of Science degree in business administration from California State University- Northridge and was a member of the honorary accounting fraternity Beta Alpha Psi. He is a graduate of Pacific Coast Banking School and is also a certified public accountant.
