Vote: 4-1, Matthew Harper dissenting

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

schools.

The joint-use agreement between the city and district was approved

last spring.

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.

Vote: 5-0

IN FAVOR

WHAT HAPPENED:

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.

NEXT MEETING

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
