Forum Tuesday on Carlsborg sewer cost

August 6th, 2012 - 6:00am

(Carlsborg) -- Clallam County, PUD and city of Sequim officials will outline plans for a new sewer in Carlsborg tomorrow night.

The community forum starts at 5:30 pm in the Sequim Transit Center.

Clallam County Commissioner Jim McEntire and community development director Sheila Roark Miller along with other county, PUD and Sequim staff will take questions from the public on the proposal.

The county is moving ahead with the sewer for Carlsborg. That system was key to lifting growth caps places on the area a number of years ago. The state lifted the caps earlier this summer.

The county will pay for the system, but the PUD will run it.

Officials are now trying to come up with what it will cost to hook up to the new sewer. County officials say they've come up with new plans to lower the hook-up costs from original proposals.

The county is dipping into a fund used for economic development projects to help pay for the sewer. It is expected to cost more than 14 million dollars to construct.
