RECOMMENDATION:

Acting as the governing board of the Oak Knoll Sewer Maintenance District and after conducting a public hearing, adopt a resolution:

VISION ALIGNMENT:

Commitment: Ensure basic health and safety for all.

Goal 7: Maintain and enhance the public safety for all residents and visitors.

 

Your Board authorizing the proposed annexation can result in the District providing sanitary sewer service to a parcel in a suburban area that would otherwise use an “on-site” method to handle wastewater, which could have an impact on neighboring residents.

 

BACKGROUND:

Previous Board Action

1.

Entered into an agreement with the City of Redwood City (City) dated
August 23, 1983, for sewage transmission and disposal of wastewater from properties within the unincorporated area of Redwood City, and within the current boundaries of the Oak Knoll Sewer Maintenance District.

Set 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 28, 2008 in the Board Chambers, as the time and place of a public hearing to consider the annexation of the Lands of Turchet to the District.

 

History

Steven A. Turchet is the current owner of the property at 715 Esther Lane, which is also identified as Assessor’s Parcel Number 058-245-010, 058-244-040, and a Portion of 093-501-010. The property owner has requested that his 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. The District is able to provide sewer service to the property. Therefore, we are recommending that the annexation be approved.

 

A resolution has been approved as to form by County Counsel and the City has consented to the annexation by adopting their Resolution 14890.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

The property owner has paid the required fees which include:

 
 

Annexation Processing Fee:

$ 800.00

 
 

District Connection Fees:

$7,559.00

 
 

Sewer Treatment Capacity Fee:

$ 177.48

Sewer Inspection Permit Fee:

The property owner will be subject to the annual sewer service charge levied by the District, currently $600 per year, and will also be required to reimburse “down stream” property owners for a proportionate share of the sewer main that they had previously constructed and which will be used to transport wastewater from this property; and to construct and pay for the sewer main extension and sewer lateral that is necessary to bring sewer service to this property.

 

There is no impact to the General Fund.
