HESPER CHARTER ROAD IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT 05-24-17
Keith Browning, Director of Public Works, provided background on the creation of the Hesper Charter Road Improvement District (Hesper CRID). CRID property owners are assessed for a portion of road maintenance costs with Douglas County funding the remaining maintenance costs.

Last year the 2017 maintenance budget was set at $52,000 which was a significant increase from the 2016 maintenance budget of $40,000. In 2011, it was determined we would keep the maintenance budget fairly constant until 2017 when the capital improvement assessments expire. Browning said he shows the budget remaining at $52,000 annual from 2018 through 2027, with Douglas County contributing $35,187 of the $52,000 and $16,813 paid by individual property owners.

Jamie Shew, County Clerk, confirmed that Hesper CRID is a special improvement district and is not subject to the tax lid law.

Gaughan opened the item for public comment. No comment was received.

Gaughan moved to hold fee for the 2018 Hesper CRID maintenance budget flat at $52,000 and approve the budget as presented. Motion was seconded by Thellman carried 3-0.
