Cameron Park CSD board celebrates summer spectacular

It was a night of congratulations and goodbyes at Wednesday’s board meeting of the Cameron Park Community Services District.

General Manager Mary Cahill reported that the Summer Spectacular on June 30 was a huge success. “It was a wonderful event where everyone worked together,” she said.

Cahill said she expects the event to generate a profit of $7,000 to $8,000 whereas last year they lost $6,000 even though attendance this year was down from last year. Cahill estimated the staff spent over 2,000 hours on the event. Last year it was contracted out.

Cahill said that a survey of attendees showed they came from a wide geographical area with most coming for the fireworks.

“Our sponsors were happy. It generated a wonderful community feeling. It was pretty exciting,” she said.

It was also announced that Battalion Chief Mike Webb had received a promotion to El Dorado Battalion 1 and had left his position with CPCSD as of the end of June. Taking his place on an interim basis is Battalion Chief Dave Teter.

Webb previously served as fire apparatus engineer/paramedic, a fire captain/paramedic, battalion chief/fire marshal, and finally battalion chief/administration and operations for Cameron Park. Board President Shiva Frentzen noted that “you always went beyond the call of duty as fire chief. Thanks so much for everything.”

Webb responded by thanking everyone for the recognition. “I’m a lucky guy to work in a great profession and for a great community,” he said.

Interviews to fill the position will take place in July with appointment of a permanent fire chief expected in August.

Denise Herrnberger, senior accountant for CPCSD, also reported that the district is projecting a $350,000 surplus at the end of the last fiscal year although not all expenses and revenues have been accounted for yet. This includes $215,588 carried over from last year plus additional revenue of $160,000 from accrued property taxes and other income. Herrnberger said it would take until September before a final accounting for the last fiscal year is complete.

Also discussed at the meeting was the possibility of a bond refinancing of the community center. Cahill said they looked into refinancing at a lower rate but the climate is not good for that and CPCSD is not eligible for a better rate. Cahill said they currently have a variable rate on the bond and after exploring the subject with a bond counsel, they are not pursuing it any further.
