7.1 State and Local Bond Report
Assistant Superintendent Parisi updated the Board about the Mitigated Negative Declaration need for CEQA.
He also reviewed the status of the bond and shared that the District is eligible for Proposition 51 design funding. These funds would pay for the design fees for Project Two. The District will need to demonstrate financial hardship within 12 to 15 months. This takes pressure off of our Project One funds because this funding will reimburse the money that was spent from Project One to design Project Two.
Trustee Luu expressed that he is concerned about the uncertainty of the timelines for funding. He is very hesitant to commit to bridge funding even knowing that we do not have to make any decisions regarding bridge funding at this point. Assistant Superintendent Parisi agreed.
Plans for Project 2 were submitted to DSA the previous week.
7.2 Resolution 2: 2018-19 State Facilities Program Funds Application
Trustee Luu emphasised that he does not want to make any further significant financial obligations that could create hardship for the district.
Trustee Thornburgh expressed that she was concerned that this resolution would create the need for the District to expend money. Mr. Parisi explained that we will qualify for financial hardship if expend or encumber all of our local bond funding in order to qualify for financial hardship funding. Trustee Thornburg expressed that she is concerned that the CEQA delay could prevent us from spending or encumbering the money in time to qualify for hardship. Superintendent/Principal Nannizzi explained that there is a minimal risk that the District would not be able to spend or encumber local bond funds prior to qualifying for financial hardship.
