Whidbey Camano Land Trust – Jessica Larson (Stewardship Director of the WCLT) submitted a request to adjust access and utility easements on DCI property south of Dugualla Road across from the lagoon (see attached). The DCI property is within the conservation easement and the adjustments would affect properties immediately south of the DCI property; the westernmost lot (owned by Cassandra and Tyler Moriarty) and the center lot if approved by the owner. The adjustments would not apply to the easternmost lot. This is the first of three steps to implement these adjustments. Danny made a motion approve granting the easement adjustments as proposed. Nadia seconded. Passed unanimously. Jessica to keep the Board up to date.
The Board received a water invoice reduction request (attached) and the Board discussed it.
Danny moved that the Board will consider each water invoice reduction request and generally for a rate reduction request due a leak after the meter, the Board will grant a one billing cycle rate reduction back to the base rate. Nadia seconded. Passed unanimously.
For this specific request, the executor of the estates of the deceased owners stated that a plumber had been to the house on January 3 2022 and was supposed to have fixed the leak. Upon receiving the latest water invoice on May 11, the executor turned off the water to the house and scheduled a plumber for a second trip to fix the leak. Danny moved that the Board grant a one billing cycle rate reduction back to the base rate. Nadia seconded. Passed unanimously. Danny to respond to the executor and update King Water.
Next Meeting: Wednesday, June 15, 2022 at 6 PM.
