Preliminary Study

Report would include:

·        Preliminary lay out of sewer system

·        Potential maximum population growth

Preliminary Study Cost:

Areas where system is installed: 

·        Valley Lake (200 homes—also where Mark lives—sewer rate, $29/month now—installed mid 70’s) they have 1 full time & 1 half time person maintaining the system.  They also have Maintenance people for sewer & water.

·        St. Mary’s

·        Olympia Village (150 homes)


Other areas of discussion:

Grinder Pumps:

·        Maintenance (limited discussion)


Feedback from first meeting:  Mike Higgins asked Jefferson County if we could bill out on a per lot basis?  It is feasible.  Lots can be consolidated and as long as it is fair. Suggestion: Print out map in big print, color code in green as owners agree to the sewer project until we have two thirds of the map completed.  This is a definitive way and a graphic representation to send to the County.
