RECQRD No PROGRESSIVE Greenville and Cheeter, Calif. Thursday, July 9, 1959 More About Sewer Bid Accepted (Continued from Page l) board is well within the eng- neer's cost estimate. In the event additional assessments are neces- sary, property owners will main- rain their right to protest and over-ruie them, he said. Engineer John Jensen, repre- serJting Clair A Hill & Associa- iates, then explained the method of determining individual assess- ments--based on dwelling units, service charges, etc. FOLLOWING BRIEF discussion on this topic, Walters again spoke up, pointing out that many people are of the opinion that even if they pay off their assessment ob- ligation after the 30-day cash period, they "will be stuck" with 15 years' interest• Attorney Holton said "Again tli information is erroneous." He i pointed out that there will be a i 30-day cash period after notice t to pay assessment is sent to the t property owner• Any time afterI this, the property owner may pay off the total amount, also paying at this time the equivalent of 15! years, interest charges. However, when enough principal is avail- able o call a $1,000 bond, the secretary will do so, deduct the interest due to that time, plus a 5 per cent premium (interest for one year) and refund the remain- der of the interest payment to the property-owner. These notices to pay will be sent out soon and will announce t the 30-day deadline, which will probably be about the first of August, Holten said. Fred Zunino then queried the board on the subject of state and federal aid. HOLTON REPLIED that last year the board applied for federal assistance but was turned down. At that ,time the local board was 37th on the list for aid; this year it reapplied and is 6th in line. So a federal aid grant might be forthcoming after Congress has appropriated aid monies. The board can apply for only up to 30 per cent of the cost of the outfall and treatment portion of the pro- jeer, he said, and has consequent- ly applied for about $25,000 Federal and state aid are one and the same, he pointed out, as the state merely handles dis- tribution for the federal govern- ment. It was then asked whether taxes would drop in the event of such aid. If such aid is forthcoming, it will be slow in moving through the proper channels, Holton said. but it will affect the tax rates in the district. Another local resident asked what could be done abou old-age pensioners and their inability to • meet the assessment costs. This problem appeared not to be within the board's jurisdiction. FROM 'WRONG SIDE OF CIgEK'VOTE DENIED Several persons then objected that the election procedure open- ed the voting to all registered voters, but t the same time some property.owners were not allowed to vote. An illustration of this was pre- sented by Art Cumins, as follows: He was notified of his voting place for the election on forming the sanitary district. He went to Employment of a firm of plan- ning consultants to prepare plans for the orderly growth of the Chester area of Plumas County is under consideration by the board of supervisors. The board at its meeting Monday had before it a recommendation of the coun- ty plain'ring commission that Ebasco Services, Incorporated, be retained for this purpose, but de- layed final action pending further study of terms.
