GDPUD workshop discusses connection fees

By From page A8 | March 01, 2013

The Feb. 21 workshop for the Georgetown Divide Public Utility District consisted of discussion with no specific actions taken.

Only three board members were present for the workshop as Kathy Otermat and Norm Krizl were absent.

Reviewed was a discussion of raw and treated water, connection fees, cost of service maintenance and infrastructure. Part of the discussion included potential changes to the connection fee for new hook ups.

General Manager Hank White said money collected for new connections to the system goes into a restricted fund that is used for certain kinds of capital improvements. Discussed at the workshop was potentially eliminating the charge.

What wasn’t discussed was how to pay for capital improvements to the system if that charge is eliminated or reduced.

Other discussions were of the vehicle use policy, revised board policies and a ditch maintenance policy.

No actions were taken on any of those items.

The next workshop was scheduled for Feb. 28 at the district’s headquarters. Agenda items included a board policy presentation by resident Dennis Goodenow and a discussion of customer service issues.
