LOCAL IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT

FOR RIVER GLEN (LID 2012-1)

 

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 6:00 p.m. to consider creating a Local Improvement District (LID).  Chair Pro Tem Johnson presided and Commissioner Donnelly was present. Also present were: Ed Schemm, Environmental Health Department;  Linda Sanders, Engineering Department; and Gael Cookman, Deputy Clerk.

 

Mr. Schemm explained that the River Glen Estates and Riverside Farms subdivisions have received a compliance notice from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, ordering them to replace their current sanitation system.  Mr. Schemm stated that they discussed four options and have chosen to connect the  subdivisions to the Town of Berthoud’s sewage system, which is estimated to cost $1,230,000.

 

Ms. Sanders explained that the LID is a one-time project and once the project is completed, the debt is paid off and the LID is dissolved.  She stated that 76% of the affected homeowners signed in favor of creating the LID and that it will be an assessment (not a mill levy), so each property owner pays the same amount, which is estimated at $14,420.  Finally, Ms. Sanders noted that the Board’s duty was to create the district first, and then the property owners would vote in the upcoming election to determine whether they wish to fund the district and the project.

 

Chair Pro Tem Johnson opened up the hearing to public comment and Julia Stapp, member of the River Glen Estates Homeowners Association, addressed the Board.  Ms. Stapp thanked the Board and staff for the opportunity to participate in this proposed solution in order to correct the issues within their sanitation district. 

 

There was no further public comment.

 

The Board also thanked staff and the property owners for their efforts in support of this endeavor thus far.

 

M O T I O N

 

Commissioner Donnelly moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve Resolution 07172012R008, creating Local Improvement District #2012-1 (River Glen), in the County of Larimer, Colorado; ordering the construction, installation, completion, and acquisition therein of certain local improvements, together with any necessary incidentals; providing for the payment of said improvements; and providing for other details in connection with the district.

 

Motion carried 2-0.

07172012R008           RESOLUTION CREATING RIVER GLEN LOCAL IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT #2012-1

 

The hearing adjourned at 6:20 p.m., with no further action taken.
