Claremont : $300,000 OKd for Drain
The City Council agreed Tuesday to contribute $300,000 toward a $2.25-million storm drain to be constructed by the county in north Claremont.
Plans call for construction of the Pomalamar Drain to begin in early summer or late fall.
According to the city staff, $205,000 of the contribution will be through a loan from the city’s sewer fund; the remaining $95,000 will come from the drainage fund. The loan will be repaid with money from drainage fees that will be assessed on proposed developments at Padua Avenue and Mt. Baldy Road.
Council member Algird G. Leiga abstained from the vote because he lives in the area north of Base Line Road that will be served by the new storm drain.
