North Bend hopes to help defray ULID costs
October 2, 2008 · Updated 9:27 AM
There are several options on the table to make a proposed sewer extension to the Tanner and Truck Town areas more affordable to property owners, who would bear the cost of the $11.7 million project.
North Bend council members last week discussed several staff-proposed revisions
created in response to an Oct. 2 public hearing.
* An 80 percent exemption for low-income seniors.
* A temporary deferral for low-income property owners.
* A provision to allow one property owner to loan another money to cover the cost of sewer.
* Allowing property owners to sell the development rights, which would limit future development and reduce the owner's share of sewer costs.
