R.H. Estates : Assessment for Sewer Study

The City Council has given final approval to a $1,000-per-parcel assessment in the Harbor Sight and Spinning Wheel neighborhoods to recover costs incurred by the city in studying the possibility of a sewer district for the area.

The 71 residents on Harbor Sight and Deerhill drives and Sweetgrass and Spinning Wheel lanes will have to pay the assessment within 30 days of notification or within one year at 10% interest.

City Manager Raymond B. Taylor said the city spent $90,390 investigating the formation of a sewer district for the area after a majority of the residents approved the plan and agreed to the $1,000-per-parcel assessment in a special election in March, 1985.

Property owners later objected to the formation of the district, however, when the city discovered that the sewers would cost an average of more than $19,000 per parcel.
