III. PRESENTATION OF THE
Budget/Financial Planning Mgr.
Garnick explained that the district has been winding down for the past
couple of years. He noted in
04/05 they made one of their last payments to the Metro Wastewater Management
Commission. He recalled over time the service district has collected property
tax dollars and those have been used to pay down the debt.
He added the debt is now retired and the district has fulfilled its
purpose. He indicated that with
any of the property tax they still receive, they make a payment periodically
to MWMC because that is what the dollars were intended for. He said in 04/05
they made a payment of $130,000 and in the current year they made a payment of
$24,000. He indicated all that is
left is $36,900. He said he
budgets some money for materials and services to cover the legal notices and
the indirects. He indicated the
money is there in case the service district board decides to do something.
He added at this point there had been no direction to do anything
different. He asked if the
service district decided if they were going to do something different.
Van Vactor responded that it wasn’t clear. He said they discussed this at SEL and they recommended
keeping the service district in existence because it is hard to form a new
Sorenson asked if they had limitations if they changed the purpose of
Van Vactor indicated he didn’t know as they were waiting for the
changes with the Boundary Commission.
Keeler asked if they could discuss this in 2008 at their next meeting.
Wilson said as annexations occur to the city, the district might need to
do its own annexation. She said
this district is formed as a County service district under ORS Chapter 451.
She said if they wanted to add another purpose, it has to be a purpose
that is authorized for a County service district.
Garnick indicated any change of the service district may require a vote
of the people in the district.
Sorenson asked if they could have options given to them at the next
