The owners of property adjacent to Lake Creek County Club are trying to have the parcel removed from the Lake Creek Sanitary Sewer District.
This week, Rob Hach of Alta told the Buena Vista County Board of Supervisors the residence at 717 Highway Seven is served by a relatively new septic system and he’s opposed to assessments on the property for the Lake Creek sanitary sewer system, which is under construction. Hach says he and his wife are in the process of selling the property, and the sale is being held up because it’s included in the sanitary district. The house was there before Lake Creek was developed and isn’t considered a part of the development.
Hach told the Supervisors they didn’t know their property was in the sewer district until a realtor discovered it a couple of weeks ago. Supervisor Dale Arends said the sanitary district was made as inclusive as possible… and wondered what the district has in their by-laws about people who want out. Attorney Gary Armstrong told the board only the Supervisors have the power to remove a property from a sanitary district.
The Supervisors took no action and placed the matter on the agenda for next Tuesday’s meeting.
