Nevertheless, the superintend dent said condemnation shouldj be authorized "because it is absolutely essential to the educa tional program to expand the Kingsbury school."

Too. by expanding at Kings bury "it will permit us to delay construction of the new elementary school on East Highland avenue — and this would save overhead costs of some $25-30,- "they are a very lovely, cordial couple" — but they said they didn't wish to sell.

And, again, the biggest criticism was over the comparatively high tax rate and the cost of facilities which are of no present benefit to taxpayers within the district. The Grand Jury listed the district under its "special report" section. The report gives a brief recap of the district's financial transactions, then lists "findings" and finally three recommendations. The report follows: The San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District was incorporated on February 17, 1954, under the Muncipal Water District Act of 1911 for determining ways and means of supplying supplemental water to San Bernardino Valley. From February 17, 1954 to June 30, 1963 the total income was $3,102,250, of which $2,993456, or 96 per cent, was from property taxes. Net water sales were $12,703. Total expenditures during this period were $1,517,948 of which $466,934 was for Capital outlay, leaving total expenses of $1,051914. Well over-half, $671,783 went for administrative, engineering and legal expenses. A considerable portion of income over expenses appears to be represented in an advance! to Improvement District No. 1 Yucaipa, and in an inactive bank account of $550,000. FINDINGS (1) For the period in the four years ended June 30, 1963, the District has purchased stock in water companies in the Basin in the total amount of $315,977 and has sold stock valued at $11,727 leaving a net investment of $304,205 as of June 30, 1963. Of the total, $272,626 or about 90 per cent, is invested in stock of the La Sierra Water company. This is 29 per cent of the total outstanding stock of this company and entitled the • District to its 29 per cent proportionate share of water produced. The historical production of La Sierra Water company is about 4,000 acre feet annually, therefore, the District can draw- about 1.200 acre feet based upon its investment. (It is obvious that the remaining investment in water stock of four other companies, $31,623.50, cannot insure delivery of quantities of water in significant amounts.) (2) On May 26, 1959, the District contracted with the City of San Bernardino for sewer effluent conservation. The City of San Bernardino then built the sewer effluent plant and the District purchased land and spreading grounds, but as of this date pumping to spreading grounds has not commenced due to an injunction by Western Municipal Water District. Since acquisition, the District has employed a full time engineer and an operator for this facility at total salaries of some $70,644. (3) On July 1, 1959, the District contracted with Stephan Riess for drilling for prime water. The District purchased the large acreage Webster Ranch in Yucaipa area for $77,000 for the initial drilling by Mr. Riess. Some water was struck by the drilling but was not thought to be prime water by the District. Mr. Riess filed a seven and a half million dollar suit against the District, the case was tried and judgment was rendered in favor of the District. As of this date, an appeal is pending. (4) On December 30, 1960 the District contracted with the State of California Department of Water Resources for 90,000 acre feet of Feather River Water to begin delivery in 1972.

RECOMMENDATIONS: (1) In the light of the large amount collected in taxes in excess of necessary expenditures, and of thc high tax rates (24 cents in 1961 and 17 cents current) when other districts are producing and delivering water on a tax base of 7 cents, it appears to the Grand Jury that fiscal responsibility to the taxpayer who supports the district should include tax relief instead of continually building up re serves that may not be used or useful in the forseeable future (2) That the sewer effluent plant has not operated and yet has a $70,644 operational cost in the past three years, makes it obvious that this is an unnecessary expense and should be cut to the very minimum. (3) That the District should sell the excess acreage known as the Webster Ranch (except for road easements and the well site) and put this money to a better use. The District should not have its capital in real estate.
