EID skips having VP

From page A1 | January 15, 2014 |

For the second time the El Dorado Irrigation District Board of Directors failed to choose a vice president.

Dec. 9 outgoing chairman Director George Osborne nominated Director Alan Day as president and Director Bill George as vice president. Day received a unanimous vote, but George only received two votes.

Jan. 13 the vice presidential vote was deadlocked again.

First the vote was 2-2-1 with Osborne and George voting for George, with Day and Director Greg Prada opposed and Director Dale Coco abstaining.

A second vote for Coco as vice president also was 2-2-1, with Coco abstaining and George and Osborne opposed.

George then made a motion, with Osborne seconding, to leave the office open.

District Counsel Tom Cumpston advised that when the board president is absent the board will have to make a decision about selecting a vice president.

“I think this board is going to be divided on a lot of issues,” said Coco. “Director Day won unanimous backing. The vice president needs unanimous backing. That’s why I’m abstaining.”

“Three directors have been elected for different direction. It won’t be unanimous. I don’t agree with that. I don’t want that statement to stand as my position,” Prada said.

“I don’t agree we need 100 percent,” Day said.

“I don’t agree with Director Coco,” said El Dorado Hills resident Jon Jakowatz. “There are two votes for him. He should accept.”

The motion to operate without a VP was withdrawn and the board president will bring it back at a future date.

At the end of the meeting, which lasted to 1 p.m., the EID Board of Directors sat as the EID Finance Corp., an annual exercise in which it approves the minutes from last year’s meeting. The Finance Corp. approves any Certificates of Participation debt issuance. None was on the agenda, however the EID Finance Corp unanimously chose Day as president and Bill George as VP.
