VIDEO. From the Montara Water and Sewer District (MWSD) Director’s meeting on Thursday, May 19th, 2022 by Zoom.
MWSD Director, Kathryn Slater-Carter, reports.
Midcoast Community Council (MCC) member, Gregg Dieguez, question why the consultant went from a $25k contract to a $880k no bid contract that “grows and grows”.
Why is the County sending me/paying for messages about climate change?
I already pay property taxes to deal with these issues in my community – would this new tax be for those same purposes?
Didn’t we already create an agency to deal with these issues?
Why can’t Measure K cover these as essential county needs?
How much can I expect to pay and for how long?
Who would make recommendations and decisions regarding which projects would be funded?
The decision-making structure for the proposed tax is still be assessed, but similar local taxes in the region have provided for funding decisions to be made by the governing board—here the Board of Supervisors and/or the appointed city officials who sit on the OneShoreline Board of Directors—with the advice and input of a Technical Advisory Committee of experts who make funding recommendations.
