Several months ago, the Board of Directors passed a resolution establishing fees when expedited road construction is requested. It amounted to $1,000 for the first 500’ of new road construction. Turns out that estimate was a little shortsighted. When the board considered Resolution 14-2019, the acceptance of maintenance responsibility for a portion of Cornejos Road, staff informed the directors a forty foot culvert with associated parts alone would cost $1,200, $200 more than the amount allowed by the original resolution. The matter is even more complicated by a board policy that required 25% of expedited fees be used to reduce the principle of the loan on the district’s road grader.

Later, on motion by Director Cook, second by Director Collins followed by unanimous vote, District Manager Eccher was directed to prepare a draft resolution and schedule a public hearing increasing expedited road fees to $2,500 for the first 500’ and $1,000 for each 500’ thereafter. The action was taken during the regularly scheduled meeting of the board on Tuesday evening, September 10, 2019, at district offices on Bent Brothers Blvd.

The board agreed to sell lots 991 and 988 in unit 14 for $3,000 each and to counter an offer on lot 1132 of unit 1 by increasing the purchase price from $2,400 to $3,000.
