RANCHO SANTA FE — Patrol Officer Bill Hanson received his 20-year pin from Matt Wellhouser, chief of the Rancho Santa Fe Patrol at the Oct. 6 Association meeting.

Hanson is also a master woodworker, said Pete Smith, manager of the Association.
“He has made shelves and cabinets all around the office,” he said.
And he makes wooden toys for children for Christmas.
“I’m getting ready to open Santa’s Workshop,” Hanson said.
Hanson also served as a submariner in the Navy and as a CHP officer before coming to Rancho Santa Fe.
On another note, the business chosen to be recognized at the meeting was Heritage Escrow and Stephanie Clark who has worked at the company since 1994.
“I’ve been here a long time,” Clark said. “I love the community.”
The business is located in one of the Lilian Rice homes.
“Every day if feels like I’m coming to a home. It’s a wonderful community to work in,” she said.
Clark, who said she works with many homeowners associations, really appreciates Rancho Santa Fe because there is always someone there to help answer questions when it comes to Real Estate in the area.
“Someone always answers the phone,” she said.
Ivan Holler, Covenant administrator, reported there are six streets in the area that are due for resurfacing.
He said public works department has put the requests before the San Diego Board of Supervisors for approval.
He said the work on the streets could begin this month or next depending on the weather.
Holler also reported that the Rancho Santa Fe Irrigation District will begin work on replacing valves in the western portion of the Covenant.
He also told the group that he and his staff is still trying to determine if there is a cluster of homeowners in an area who are interested in under grounding their utilities.
“Interest is dispersed. There is no particular cluster,” he said.
“It would be nice to get one (area),” said Director Anne Feighner.
Smith reported to the Association that it participated in the disaster preparedness drill at R. Roger Rowe School along with the Rancho Santa Fe Patrol, CHP and sheriff’s department.
“It was very, very productive,” Smith said.
At the meeting, the Association also approved a boundary adjustment between the property of Robert and Adelyn Firtel and Ronald and Monica Perlman at 17124 and 17128 Calle Corte. The adjustment will exchange equally sized areas of approximately 229-square-feet between the Firtel and Perlman properties for the purpose of eliminating the encroachment of existing improvement across the current lot line.
