Sewer district 3 residents to pay full connection fees
Residents of sewer district 3 will have to pay the full connection fee when they hook into Basehor’s wastewater treatment plant.
During City Administrator Mark Loughry’s report at Monday’s Basehor City Council meeting, he announced the city had only received seven forms back from its attempt to acquire a 100 percent voluntary annexation of the Glenwood Estates subdivision into the city.
At the council’s Nov. 16, 2009 meeting, the council approved, 4-1 with member Iris Dysart opposed, to offer Glenwood homeowners a reduced flat rate of $2,000 per lot to join the city’s sewer system when their current lagoons have been decommissioned. However, the lower price would only go into effect if the subdivision had 100 percent of the 97 homes agreeing to voluntarily annex into the city.
The city prepared agreements to be sent to each of the 97 lots, and having only received seven back, residents will now have to pay the full $4,425 per lot as a connection fee.
