Since that time, several events have occurred that required the SAM Board to proceed with certain projects which require funding.

The project has commenced, and the Contractor has many submittals approved. Construction is scheduled to start in February. Electrical items have been ordered and there is good progress on the project.
It is expected the project will be completed, as per the required ERF Consent Decree Latest Date, by June 30, 2024.
A budget of $1,263,181 was approved as a part of the General Budget in Fiscal Year 2022/23.

B. Design of Montara Force Main: This is required to be completed by December 31, 2024, as per ERF Consent Decree Amendment dated August 2023.
This is a new CIP Project and predesign work was in progress at the time the budget preparation was done in June 2023. The predesign was completed and a final design proposal submitted by SRT Consultants is being taken to the Board as Item 4E for approval.
The following are the estimated costs for completing the final design of the entire Montara Force Main:

d) Estimated Geo-Tech Costs: $100,000 Total Costs: $783,100
Balance required for Mid-Year Budget Adjustment for this project: $ 783,100.
Staff believes that any additional expenses can be funded by reprioritizing and deferring other tasks to reduce the burden on member agencies.
Therefore, total Mid-Year Budget Adjustment Required is $2,122,692.
Staff recommends that the Board of Directors authorize the General Manager to submit the MidYear Budget Amendment for FY 2023/24 to the member agencies and to request that this item be placed at the next regular meeting for each agency to consider and approve.

SAM is a joint powers authority (JPA) created by its three member agencies: City of Half Moon Bay (City), Granada Community Services District (GCSD), and the Montara Water and Sanitary District (MWSD).
The JPA is a separate, independent, public agency created by the member agencies to perform functions and share powers common to the member agencies. Those powers are outlined in a joint exercise of powers agreement (Agreement). The Agreement creating SAM can be found on the Documents page.
Each Agreement identifies how the independent agency will be governed. In the case of SAM, each member agency appoints two members from its governing board to represent it on the SAM Board of Directors, for a total of six directors.
The Agreement also establishes the weight of each director’s vote. The vote by each representatives from the City is given the weight of two votes. The vote by each representative from GCSD and MWSD is given the weight of one vote. The total number of possible votes is eight. A quorum is a minimum of five votes and resolutions require at least six votes to pass.
