Water and sewer fee increase on next Town Council agenda
Next council meeting is Jan. 8, 6 p.m.

Discussion of a proposed increase for Chino Valley water and sewer customers is just one of several items on the Jan. 8 town council meeting agenda.

Council will discuss a public Notice of intention to Increase Water and Wastewater Rates, Fees, and Service Charges. If agreed upon, the notice will be published in local papers later this month.

Also on the agenda:

• Discussion on the possible endorsement of three new round-abouts to be constructed by ADOT at Road 4 North, Perkinsville Road, and near Road 5 South.

• Discussion of a planned seven-acre expansion of the Community Center Park at Perkinsville Road. If approved, expansion will cost $90,000 with money coming from Park Impact Fees reserved for parks projects only.

• Consideration of a liquor license permanent extension of premises for Doreen's Backstreet Bar & Grill, allowing for the serving area to include additional outdoor areas.

• Possible re-appointments of Jack Owen and Gwen Rowitsch to the Planning and Zoning Commission.

A full agenda is available online at www.chinoaz.net. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m., Jan. 8 in council chambers, 202 N Highway 89.

Roundabouts!!!! Come-ON!!! We do not need more roundabouts... Perkinseville, 4 north and 5 north need intersections..... Drive to Cottonwood over Mingus Mountain and see how ridiculous it is to drive through so many in a short distance. Let's build corners for businesses to develop and sidewalks for pedestrians to travel on. Roundabouts are terrible and based on our one, they are not a solution.... We have several semi-trucks that travel our highways and they can't make the turn.. Open your eyes!

@ Red Dee- remember, the water and sewer projects were approved by the voters of this town, along with the required growth to the system to sustain it- from what it looks like, long before your arrival to CV, so the fault lies with your neighbors that voted for it.
The money for the artwork is not coming from town funds- it's an ADOT/FED program that is only available for this purpose- the choice was take it for dressing up or pass on it- it is illegal to use earmarked $ for anything but the stated purpose.
As for the roundabouts themselves, if someone is unable to navigate them, maybe they should not be on the road to begin with.

When I moved to Chino Valley a little over 2 years ago, I was shocked at the high sewer rate being charged. As a renter in the area who was recently forced to move due to my former landlord's allowing the home to go into foreclosure, I was again shocked when I tried to transfer my water service to a new rental and was told that the Town no longer provided water service to renters, that water/sewer service had to remain in the property owner's name, despite the fact that I had never been late on paying my water/sewer bill for 2 years. The Town effectively lumped me in with other "deadbeat" tenants who had racked up water/sewer bills and skipped out on them.

Now, the Town is going to effectively make me and all other Chino Valley residents on the Town's water/sewer system foot the bill for their overall poor planning. I have every intention of attending this council meeting and voicing my displeasure, but it will most likely end up being a moot point as the council will pass whatever increase they have decided is appropriate.

Would it not make more sense to NOT spend money on "artwork" for the Outer Loop roundabout that will ultimately just be destroyed by idiots crashing over the top because they fail to slow down for it? Given the number of accidents I've seen at that roundabout in just the last 30 days or so, does it make any sense whatsoever to discuss installing additional roundabouts? Would those funds not be better spent relieving the residents of the burden of paying for a sewer system that the Town has obviously not planned well?

These are questions we ALL need to be asking at this upcoming council meeting.

Just raise the sewer bill to $600/month and get it over with. Why don't we protest?
