The Salton City Building moratorium that was put in place in April of 2007 has been lifted. Developers can once again obtain construction permits from the County of Imperial for projects within Salton City. The moratorium was put in place amidst concerns that the Salton City Sewer Treatment System was critically over capacity.

With a little luck an increase in sewer treatment capacity in Salton City should be done in 5-6 months from now....just about in time for any houses that start construction now.

After the new ponds are paid for at a cost of about $3,000,000, the Sewer Construction Fund will only have around $1,000,000 left in it.

Unfortunately there are still about 2000 lots in Salton City that the District is contractually obligated to run a sewer lateral (line) to. The cost for this will definitely be way more than $1,000,000.

It's time to pay the piper for all the money that the SCSD has been skimming off of the Sewer Construction Fund for almost 50 years that they used on office overhead and not on sewer construction.

Maybe Directors Palmer and Butler have a solution for this. After all, they were on the Board for many years when this skimming has occurred.

Maybe they’ll just impose another illegal fee which seems to be their status quo.

Seems the only word mr barrett knows is illegal, If every thing SCSD does is illegal how come there is no fines, indictments, or grand jury reccomdations and the Directors he is aginst are re-elected, Does mr barrett know more than everyone else or is he a legend in his own mind?

And it wouldn't be the first time that other governments agencies turned their head away from obvious wrong doing because they had "bigger fish to fry" and limited resources.

Time will tell who's right here

I just wish you wouldn't post the same story four times. I don't understand why your posting this same story over and over.

Only because you try to bury the story by posting ELEVEN articles at the same time to bump it off the page.

Could it also be that the lifting of the Building Moratorium in Salton City IS one of the most relevant news items to the area?
