   These are the stories we are working on for this week's newspaper:
  • Image makeover needed: In the soon-to-be-released grand jury report, the jurors said the county’s Alcohol and Drug and Mental Health departments are suffering from a poor public image.
  • Help at the jail: The Board of Supervisors approved the sheriff’s request to hire four corrections officers, but not before reminding him the county is facing a $3 million budget problem.
  • Water disaster?: The state has already enacted emergency conservation measures. The county is thinking about declaring a local disaster as well.

Hooked up yet? Meeting flush with sewer issues

What will happen to property owners who have not yet hooked up to the 1998 sewer extension, as required?

That is one of the sewer issues up for discussion and action Wednesday, Nov. 10, at 6:30 p.m. in the Indian Valley Civic Center at 430 Main St. in Greenville.

Greenville resident Tamera Talent is also on the agenda with a sewer-related issue: The road to the sewer ponds runs through her property, and for more than five decades sole responsibility for maintenance of that road has been with what is now the Indian Valley Community Services District.

Talent attended the October meeting as well, to report on her unsuccessful attempts to make the district staff repair the potholes and ruts that make it hard for her to get in and out of her home.

The issue is complicated by her short-lived use of a portion of her property at the beginning of the road for self-contained recreational vehicle camping.

Now she is requesting the district abandon the condemnation and easement taken through the middle of the historical Indian Valley Hot Springs property back in the 1950s for construction of the sewer ponds.

Currently, that is the only road leading into the ponds for maintenance and operation of the ponds.

 

Hooked up yet?

In June 2009, directors discussed the sewer expansion area and the few property owners who failed to hook up to the system.

Those landowners had been in violation of sanitary ordinances for a few years by then.

Directors voted to allow General Manager Leanna Moore to negotiate the financial arrangements with property owners on an individual basis, with the first payment due within six months and the total fee to be paid off in two years.

“This is a community sewer system,” director Jane Braxton Little said. “We’re trying to be fair to the whole group.

Nothing has been said about what would happen if any of the property owners refused to connect to the system and remained in violation of local sanitation ordinances.

Barring special meetings, directors of the Indian Valley Community Services District meet the second Wednesday of each month, at 6:30 p.m. at 430 Main St. in Greenville.

For more information, a recording of the meeting is available at indianvalleycsd.com.

Recordings are accessed through the agendas and minutes tab, then the link to it will be at the bottom of the agenda for the specific month of interest.
