<br />I <br /> <br />ROLL CALL <br /> <br />WATER <br />REVENUE <br />7-1/ ,/:( . f7 <br /> <br />1 <br /> <br />., <br /> <br />17 : 6924 <br /> <br />'M I NUT 'E S <br /> <br />CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF ARCADIA <br /> <br />ADJOURNED REGULAR MEETING <br /> <br />DECEMBER 10, 1966 <br /> <br />Pursuant to the order of adjournment of the regular meeting of the <br />City Council of December 6, 1966, the City Council of the City of <br />Arcadia met in adjourned regular session on December 10, 1966 at <br />9 A.M., in the Conference Room of the City Hall., <br /> <br />PRESENT: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Councilmen Arth, Butterworth, Considine, Hage, Forman <br />None <br /> <br />The City Manager summarized in detail his report dated December 2, <br />1966 covering areas for Council consideration in deliberating the <br />need and possible source of additional revenue to finance city <br />membership in the Metropolitan Water District and to finance and <br />determine priority in capital project needs of the water system (all <br />material on file in the office of the City Clerk). The recapitu- <br />lation of proposed rate revisions (attached hereto) reflected bi- <br />monthly billings indicating cost per cubic feet and increase over <br />present costs, all based on meter sizes and broken down into <br />different plans. It was particularly noted that the water rate for <br />Plan 'B' would be 19~ per 100 cubic feet and all other plans would <br />be l8~ per 100 cubic feet. <br /> <br />Concerning capital project needs, he stated in part that although the <br />so-called Montgomery report has not as yet been updated it was noted <br />that re-examination of both capital needs and replenishment costs has <br />resulted in a showing of increased dollar needs rather than a <br />reduction; that the rate recommendations revolve around approximately <br />an annual need of $227,000; that it must be determined if that amount <br />would accomplish the anrua 1 need s over a period of the next seven <br />years. It was his observation that it would. <br /> <br />Mayor Forman retired from the meeting at 9:30 A.M. <br /> <br />Conrad T. Reibold, 272 W. Longden Avenue, former City Councilman and <br />the City's representative on the Upper San Gabriel Valley Water Ass'n. <br />stated in part that if Council is convinced that an urgency exists he <br />would suggest placing the amount necessary on the property taxes. He <br />referred to non-water users like the May Company and the new Pantry <br />Market development and compared what the City would receive for the <br />purpose if placed on water bills and what the City would receive if <br />it were based on the assessed valuation of property. He also remarked <br />that the City would be charged in the lawsuit accounting with the <br />total gallonage pumped under the Basich Lease, but the pumpers will <br />not pay any portion of the City's financial obligation even though <br />the City's obligation be increased by their pumpage. He did not feel <br />that the standby concept of rate making was appropriate for water. <br /> <br />Mayor Forman returned to the meeting at 9:50 A.M. <br /> <br />Considerable discussion was held on whether or not all or part of the <br />charge should be placed on the ad valorem tax or raised by one of the <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />12-10-66 <br />
