Vote postponed on property agreement
Sunday, Aug. 16, 2015 — A vote pertaining to property for the placement of a second water tank as well as issues on the relinquishment of water rights at Duck Lake with Beaty and Associates was tabled at the Monday, Aug. 3 meeting of the board of directors for the Westwood Community Services District. The board determined it needed additional information before voting.
The district is taking the necessary steps to install a second water tank, recommended by the state of California Water Resources Control Board. The project was accepted by the Upper Feather River Regional Water Management Group, which makes it eligible for grants, therefore the district is working on the engineering aspects in order to be ready when money becomes available. The plan is to obtain grant money in the amount of $700,000 for the purchase of a million-gallon steel tank.
