Much has been said about the water storage tanks that are almost 20 years old and have served their life span. Yes, they may be able to be refurbished as is suggested, but until a detailed analysis of the tanks is done TWO (2) years from now, no one can foresee whether this is to replace or refurbish. The water we receive is direct from our supplier and we do not re-treat. Our delivery system is all PVC and is not corroded as some would suggest. A comment was made about road damage if the tanks are replaced by heavy trucks. These roads are traveled twice a week by heavy trucks (trash) and replacement water tank loads would be traveling only on "concrete" roads, again a false speculation. A system for improving the taste is being studied at this time, but until more detailed information is presented with the cost the Board cannot act.
A canal study is almost complete and is to be presented to the Board soon. With this study the Board will be able to request financial assistance from various sources. You can not ask for help if you do not know what you need help with. Any canal work would require separate funding and is not part of this bond request, and would call for neighborhood approval.
The issue of a bond has been going on for a year and much has been said about the Board members conduct, ethics, ability to govern, provide product, etc. Now is the time to throw the "hatchet" away and come together to elect a knowledgeable Board that has the past experience and the working knowledge to carry this District forward for the next four years.
I am asking that you the voters "KEEP THE EXPERIENCE' and re-elect Bill Alcorn to the MUD board, and to elect Richard Matthews from Omega Bay.
