With one vacancy on the board of the Cameron Park Community Services District, a special meeting will be held on April 7, 5:30 p.m. to interview candidates vying for the spot.
According to General Manager Mary Cahill, eight people have filled out applications for the position. They are Mark Harris, Keith Kaplan, Gerald Lillpop, Steven Long, Margaret Mohr, Barbara Rogers, Perry Ruller and Raymond M. Wyatt.
Cahill said if for some reason the board can’t decide on a candidate, the position may remain vacant until it’s filled at the November election.
The board also approved a collective bargaining agreement with the Public Employees Union, Local Number One, at its March 12 meeting.
The agreement includes a new wage scale and a six percent COLA (cost of living increase) for union-represented employees over the next three years with the increase backdated to July of last year.
The new agreement also comes with the provision that Tier 1 employees pay 50 percent of the employee-portion of CalPERS in 2017, while Tier 2 and 3 employees would have to pay all of the employee portion of CalPERS effective immediately.
A five percent COLA increase for the CC&R Enforcement Officer was also approved. He is unrepresented by the union.
A grand opening of the new dog park at Hacienda Park will be held on April 12 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The park is a joint effort between the district and the El Dorado Dog Owners Guild.
A presentation on a draft master plan for parks and recreation was reviewed. The plan is available for comment for 30 days.
In addition to the special meeting on April 7 to interview board candidates, the board will hold two regular meetings in April. One will be on April 9 at 5:30 p.m. The other will be on April 16 at 7 p.m.
