Reader input: Sewer plan is too expensive

-A +A

The facts on local or regional sewer system
The proposed sewer user fee is $95.78 per month for regional service, depending on cost of the project, which is probably going to exceed the $73 substantially.
On March 13, 2012, a plan for a local system was presented to the Board of Supervisors who voted it down.
The cost was estimated at $62 million, The user fee would stay at $82 a month. This would serve the area for 20 years with plans for expansion depending on population growth. This system would stay with SMD1, not to Lincoln.
All this information is public record. As Betsy Williams stated (Reader Input, April 16), send in your no vote.
Regional or local costs may be higher as construction costs have risen since 2012.
