Publie Meeting Friday &apos;On Sewer Project; Bond Election Tuesdav # A puglic meeting for the purpose of giving local residents the opportunity of presenting questions and dis- cussing the various ,aspects of the community's proposed new sewer system has been scheduled for Friday (Jan- uary 2) by the Greenville Sanitary District. The meet- ing will be at the high school gymnasium, beginning at 8 p.m. . A special election is scheduled for this coming Tues- day I January 6 at which time voters of the sanitary dis- trict will be asked to approve a proposition providing for the issuance of general obligation bonds in the anaount of $120,000---which will be used for "acquisition, con- struction and completion of sanitary sewers and a sewer- 'ae collection, outfall, treatment and disposal works sys- tem." Sample ballots have been mailed to registered voters of the district.) This $,120.000 represents about one-third the cost of the proposed project, expected to be completed for a ,*atal of $350.000. The collection system will call for an ', estimated $259.00& the treammnt system for some $7%- 000 and acquisition of land and rights-of-way for an ad- " ditiorai $t 2.000. if Tuesday's election is successful, it is proposed to finance the balance of the project through formation of local assessment districts. In each of these districts, costs of installing and fi- nancing the local collection sewers (as well as portions of the main truck sewers which cannot be financed from' proceeds of the general obligation bonds) would be as- Sessed. The Sanitary District. organized about 14 months ago comprises almost ;all of the town's developed area--- well as some open land which may be developed in the future. The proposei project contemplates construction of six, eight and ten-'inch sewer mains throughout the dis- trict, together with' house laterals, a pumping station, an outfall sewer an&.sewage lagoons. The disposal sys- Iem would be located O@tside the sewer district boundary, on Wolf Creek downstream from the Feather River Dis- The general obligation bonds to be voted on Tuesday would be retired over a period of 40 years at an esti- mated iterest rate of 51 per cent. A tax would be levied each_ year to pay the principal and interest. he,esent assed valuation of the district is ap- Primate!y $8(0.000. If this does not increase, the av- erage tax per year would be $1.17 for each S100 of as- :,essd valuation.  On property which is assessed at $1,- 000, this wouhl amount to about $11.70 per year or 97 cents per month. The $120,000 is the debt capacity of the district, which is legally prohibited from selling more than this amount in general obligation bonds. The proceeds from these bonds would be ed for facilities which will be ca! general benefit to all of the lands within the district. The district will undertake to finance the balance of the cost of the project by the issuance and sale of as- sessment 'bonds, While the exact assessment for each individual prop- erty Owner cannot be forseen at this time, it is estimated by the district's engineer that the cost per home would arage about $435--payable in 15 annual installments wi  per cent interest on the declining balance. The ct d be approximately $48 per year (or $4 per amount needed for operation and of the iacilities once they are completed is cents per month for the average home-owner. bonds are a means of financing by cost of improvements of a local nature is as- the property which is benefitted.
