Vote: 4-1, Matthew Harper dissenting
The board approved the first amendment to the joint use agreement with
the city of Huntington Beach for pools at Huntington Beach and Ocean View
These amendments call for the Huntington Beach High pool to be
accessible to the community for at least 25 years and for the city to
have the option to maintain either pool if the district determines that
it is financially unable to maintain one or both of them.
WHAT IT MEANS:
The district and the city have worked for several years on the design
of the aquatic facilities at Huntington Beach and Ocean View high
The joint-use agreement between the city and district was approved
The city is prepared to provide its share of the cost of construction
for the pool at Huntington Beach High School using funds provided by the
State Park Bond Act of 2000.
These changes to the joint use agreement were needed to satisfy the
state's requirements for joint use agreements.
The board approved the joint funding agreement with the city of
Huntington Beach for a pool at Huntington Beach High School.
WHAT IT MEANS:
The proposed funding agreement divides the cost of the pool -- $1.83
million -- according to the planned proportional use, 53% school use and
47% city use.
Contributions from Take the Plunge, money recovered from the Orange
County Investment Pool bankruptcy, deferred maintenance funds.
Modernization funds will cover a large portion of the district's share,
with another $172,053 remaining.
Under the joint funding agreement the city will finance the district's
remaining share in addition to its own.
The district will repay the city with interest by credits on future
maintenance cost reimbursements due to the district by the city. The
district also has the option to pay the balance at any time.
The agreement requires the district to repay the city for its share of
the construction costs if the district fails to complete the project or
denies the city use of the pool. If the city chooses to terminate the
joint use agreement, it is not entitled to recover its contribution.
The Huntington Beach Union High School District will meet again at
7:30 p.m. March 13 in the board room at the district office, 10251
Yorktown Ave., Huntington Beach
