Here is the link for the board package for our Regular Helix Water District Board Meeting:
REGULAR MEETING OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Wednesday, March 15, 2017, 6 PM
7811 University Avenue, La Mesa, CA 91942-0427
Item 5 b). (pdf page 23-25) Minutes
- As depicted in the minutes of the Special Meeting on March 8, 2017. The meeting was called to discuss lowering water rates. After a presentation by staff indicating any decrease in rates this year would only be countered with much higher rates the following year. However, there is a possible anticipated 2.18M in revenue increase by the end of the year, but there are too many unknowns at this time. The end result was no rate decrease now, but this board wants to do a thorough 2017/18 Budget review process and evaluate corresponding water rates associated with the budget.
Item 6. (pdf page 90) Partial Sale of Surplus Property on High Street
- The District owns 6.94 acres near the Quarry in La Mesa. Part of the property is the cliff area and the adjoining property owner would like to purchase that section approximately, 31,400 square feet ($9,734). The developer wishes to add this area to their residential development for the purpose of stabilizing the slope to protect his development. An appraisal of the district’s larger parcel revealed that the larger parcel is worth just as much without the subject strip of land as it is with it. This is a testament to its steep and rugged terrain, which tenders it useless.
