No decision on sewer rate increase options

(Supervisors sit as Country Club Sewer Maintenance District Board of Directors)….This was to discuss a sewer rate increase for members of the Country Club Sewer Maintenance District.

The system needs maintenance and some repairs. The County, since taking over the District years ago, has incurred a debt of over $400,000. Public Works Director William Brunet said ideally, he would like to take out a loan to perform the maintenance, payback the County, and build a reserve for future needs. He said a rate increase was needed for that. The Supervisors Tuesday discussed several options and answered several questions from the public. The Board needed to pick one of the options to present to the residents for a proposition 218 protest-hearing vote. The Board decided to continue the discussion on November 5th. District one Supervisor John Renision had to leave the discussion before it was over. Board Chairman Ray Castillo said he would prefer to have the full Board present to vote on a particular option. It was also asked that Brunet bring back a re-worked matrix of options, one that was easier to understand.
