MSWD/SAM Operating Budget Review for year 2020-2021
Comparing the Cost of Montara Water/Sewer with GCSD.
At 41:04 Clemens take public comment question on comparing the cost of Montara water/sewer with GCSD.
Montara is hilly and water and sewers movement requires pumps (13 lift stations/ and 23 grinder stations) and a multitude of grinder pumps.
Rags and wipes get into the pumps and they are expensive to fix.
Last month a pump cost $80k to fix.
GCSD has only 3 lift stations
Half Moon Bay has 1 lift station.
The districts are also funded differently.
GCSD income includes property taxes, and commercial income from the harbor.
MSWD income is rates, no property taxes and very little commercial.
