COMPREHENSIVE SEWER RULES AND REGULATIONS ORDINANCE NO. 1-09
Manager Brown reiterated the Board adopted the Comprehensive Sewer Rules And Regulations Ordinance NO. 1-09 in May 2009. Since then, Manager Brown has met With the local realtors and escrow title representatives to discuss the implementation of The Ordinance. Manager Brown stated based on the feedback received he would Recommend postponing the publishing of the Ordinance for a reasonable amount of time To provide a window for the effected parties to develop the District’s policy into Their business plan. After discussion it was moved by Director Ball and seconded by Director Dennis To suspend the implementation of Ordinance NO. 1-09 The motion passed with a
majority affirmative vote. The results were as follows:
AYES; President Fraser, Director Ball, Dennis and Onken
ABSENT: Director Kiely
It sounds to me like they are being considerate and giving us time to prepare for the Point Of Sale (Point of Sale means when a home is being sold and goes into escrow it will then be mandated by LOAPUD that the seller pay for a test to determine if the sewer line is leaking–which means the seller will probably have to hire a contractor to test the line. If it fails the test, it will then have to be dug up and replaced at a cost to the seller which could be $5,000 or $10,000 or more depending on the length of the line from the house to the sewer. It has the potential to hold up the sale or stop a sale if it is a short sale.
If you own a home or property in the LOAPUD Sewer District—This Will Affect You.
It is just a matter of how and when the testing will be done.
