Letter to Residents Addresses Parking, Water Bills, Infrastructure

In a December 2016 letter to KCFWSD 1-B residents, Water Board President, C. Keith Hughey focused on issues facing the district. While the letter is dated, its content remains relevant.

The following are excerpts from the letter:

Concerning Water Bills and Infrastructure: "Rest assured that at this time there are no immediate plans to raise rates for consumers in Phase 1 but we do have a number of upcoming challenges. As the district closes in on 15 years old some of our streets, sidewalks, and drainage are in need of repair."

Concerning Parking: "The primary reason for this message is .... an issue with vehicles parked on the grassy medians and sidewalks."

Hughey noted that parking on medians and sidewalks presents various problems including: damage to waste water and storm drainage pipes; damage to sidewalks; and the creation of obstacles for those using sidewalks for their intended purpose.

He expressed the hope that the issue could be resolved by voluntary compliance, eliminating the need for mandatory restrictions, fines, or towing.

Hughey reminded residents that the Board normally meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month and that residents are welcome to attend the meetings.
