Water Supply Agreement Approved
Council approved the County entering into an agreement with the Mountain View Regional Water Services Commission for the provision of a future water supply for MVC.
The total cost of the access agreement is $3,308,421, with half of that amount due when the agreement is finalized and signed. Council approved $1.5 million in the 2015 budget toward the securement of water access rights from the commission.
The remainder of the balance will be paid over a 10 year period, as outlined in the agreement.
The County has been trying for several years to access the rights to water.
