12:30 am
you need to fix the among yourselves. >> there does not seem to be anything inappropriate. >> i do not think it is inappropriate. i think from their point of view, they would prefer that we fix it for them. it is several areas. those are the four, with their projections for use would have exceeded their individual supply guarantee. >> the high number for hayward is mainly a pre-existing contract. >> right, they get what they need. i think the distinction is if there is a transfer market, and those that have higher guarantees would possibly sell some of their extra that they may not want to hav that city, because of the way we treated
12:31 am
them, would not have the option of selling it, because they already have whatever they need. they do not have something in addition to that as an allocation. commissioner: while i do not want to suggest what the position of our wholesale customers might be, what i would like to suggest is that what the people with isg's would love -- they have a very preferred position but that others would envy. -- position that others would envy. >> when was that signed? >> 1962. president vietor: commissioner moran? commissioner moran: i have read them and keep reading them as
12:32 am
they come in. thank you for doing that. over the course of time, i think that has served to put on the table all of the issues and arguments that take place, and i do not think there is an and presented argument that we need for our consideration. it has been an interesting and productive effort would staff to get us where we are. anybody who has been listening to my comments knows that i started up by saying that if i got free rein, what i would do is with the isg's, make that equal supply insurance, so why was my preference, i cannot do that. i would prefer to do that, frankly, because it keeps our long-term objectives consistent with our short term objectives.
12:33 am
things would be solved within the isa's, if you could do it that way. i presented it as a dilemma. it created a situation where somebody could use more than their supply guarantee. more than the interim supply assurance.
12:34 am
it is a surplus back to the people who have that. this is a for every issue.
12:35 am
-- a forever issue. if eat palo alto -- east palo alto was successful, i think we would be very sympathetic to that. and part of what option 5 does is it keeps in place the incentive to do that. this would basically say that if there are adjustments, is that those changes would be affected on the supply. the allocation, as well.
12:36 am
bulls customers are approaching their water supply situation very serious. they are approaching conversation -- conservation measures aggressively. the targets they have to be are tougher than the targets we have to meet. they are already doing that.
12:37 am
there are a couple of amendments of would propose to make, to effectuate that. i will hold those. president vietor: thank you. i, for one, appreciate your comments, particularly in regards to east palo alto. if we do proceed with option 5 and with the market transfer arrangement. i just from my environmental conservation seat, i also hope that there was a change in the guarantees as a result of the market transfer arrangement or option five. there would be a high value placed on water conservation and per-capita use, because i think it is something that east palo
12:38 am
alto has been doing and should be awarded for. this is in regards to the recognition we want to give east palo alto. i also want to a knowledge everyone for their conservation efforts, and what they have been doing, because it looks like we might be in pretty good shape as far as 2018 goes. the real issue is going to be 2018 on, and started to think about that and looking at what that is going to be for all of us, but i just want to acknowledge the good work that has been done and staff, as well, in presenting the options. i think it really has been quite remarkable, and a lot of that has been because of the input of the customers and the back and forth and the dialogue, and it is really great to be able to have that input into the government process and the decision making body like this, so i just want to recognize that, because it has worked well
12:39 am
in the situation to really try and see all of the ways this very complicated pi could be carved up. -- pie could be carved up. if there are no other comments, perhaps we can entertain a motion that commissioner moran had? commissioner: there is one that is not a component. >> city attorney's office. i think you should do this.
12:40 am
commissioner: then i will do that. it would be resolved with an individual supply guarantee. this is also pursuant to a certain section of the code. president vietor: so is there a motion to adopt? thank you. any further public comment on this item? hearing none, all of those in favor? commissioner: i would like to have the motion restated and an explanation.
12:41 am
president vietor: maybe the commission secretary can do that, unless, mr. moran, you are comfortable? commissioner moran: what was distributed to the calendar, amended in three respects, one dealing with option 5, the second to delete a final resolved clause, and then there's the isg transfer. commissioner: that would help east palo alto? commissioner moran: it does not help them today, but, frankly, that problem is been there for decades. president vietor: but i think in that light, the record should state the conversation we have had in regards to east palo
