Entered into an agreement with the City of Redwood City (City) dated

HISTORY:

Peter and Elaine Withrington are the current owners of the property at 19 Don Court, which is also identified as Assessor’s Parcel Number 058-040-190. They have requested that their property be annexed to the District in order to receive sewer service.

 

A public hearing to consider an annexation to the District is required pursuant to Section 4860 et seq. of the Health & Safety Code.

 

DISCUSSION:

The public hearing to consider the proposed annexation has been properly noticed and the appropriate description prepared.

 

A resolution has been approved as to form by County Counsel and the City has consented to the annexation by adopting their Resolution 14812.

 

The District is able to provide sewer service to the property. Therefore, we are recommending that the annexation be approved.
