If you don’t know what sewer phase you are in…you’d better find out. Go to their sewer website and click on the GIS portal…enter the address or parcel# to confirm what phase you are in. There are no sewer assessment costs at this time, but staff will soon make arrangements to post the individual assessment to each parcel.
Here is the GIS portal>LINK
Let’s get to the bottom line for residential and vacant lots in Phase One.
WORSE CASE SCENARIO-MAXIMUM ASSESSMENT AT 1.5% for 30 years
Single Family Residence $17,404 $702.00 annual bill on taxes (fixed for 30 years)
Vacant Lot/Undeveloped $12,809 $516.00 annual bill on taxes (fixed for 30 years)
Deferred Parcels(Phase One) $ 7,994 $322.65 annual bill on taxes (fixed + future assessment)
PHASE TWO and PHASE THREE- Current assessments towards main line/treatment plant)
Single Family Residence $4,627 $$186.75 annual bill on taxes (fixed PLUS future assessment)
Phase One must be up and running by May 2016, Phase Two by 2018 and Phase Three by 2020.
It is anticipated Phase Two and Phase Three will be combined with Deferred properties in a second assessment vote after the collection systems are calculated for the cost factor to link to main sewer line.
The figures above are the worse case scenario. The presentation to the Board of Directors used a 1.5% interest rate while staff is applying for 1/2%. Another factor is whether or not there will be 5% or 10% grants applied. And a real bad proposal to do the whole project in-house which will take 5 years to complete compared to 2 years by hiring the professionals.
ALSO- Add $2,000 to each single family residence (probably more like $3,500) to abandon the private septic tank (fill with sand) and install individual connections (laterals) to the main sewer line.
The $125 million project breaks down to Sewer Plant 28%, Collection System 43% and Road Restoration 29%.
I’ll let those number sink in for awhile until the next post. For anyone who still has their nose bent about Measure U being defeated, please know the State Revolving Fund lowered their 30 year interest rate as a result of that sales tax not being approved.
Here are the calculations for other property types PHASE ONE only:
Multiple Family Units, Duplex, Triplex, Apartment Units apply .72% of above residential X EACH unit.
Mobile Home, apply .60% of above residential costs
Commercial, Based on actual water usage. (1 EDU x 365 divided by Actual water use. Call Mark Ban for further details)
Here is the link to the HDWD agenda to understand more background and using the EDU, Equivalent Dwelling Unit, a baseline value based upon water use. One EDU=175 gallons Agenda>LINK
PHASE ONE- Sample Monthly Costs/Single Family Residence
Additional sewer costs: Operation/Maintenance per month=$35 +monthly assessment $58.54 +lateral financing $8.00
Then add: HDWD water costs: Service charge $20.00 PLUS water usage
