The Auburn City Council is scheduled to review the latest set of deal points related to the regional sewer project with Placer County and Lincoln at its regular meeting tonight.

This time, the stipulations are related to Auburn buying capacity in a common section of the pipeline with Placer County at an estimated cost of $2.8 million.

The county Board of Supervisors declined Auburn’s deal points for full participation in the project on March 12 after the city requested $18 million to subsidize the cost to its customers and keep rates stable.

Buying into the common pipeline would keep the option open of connecting to the regional sewer at a later date, and Auburn would have the ability to sell the capacity if it determines in the future that it won’t need it, if Placer County accepts that proposed stipulation.
