Bronson impact fees tabled

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

A decision on the long-debated impact fees ordinance for new water and sewer hookups in the Town of Bronson was put off by council members in a 3-2 vote Jan. 22 in what was slated to be the second and final reading of the ordinance.

Vice Mayor Berlon Weeks and Council Member Jason Kennedy voted against tabling the matter.  Mayor Franklin Schuler cast the tie-breaking vote. 

The discussion began with Weeks, before a packed room, asking Council Member Aaron Edmondson to explain why the proposed rates were a good thing. The lowest proposed fees for the smallest diameter meters, according to the ordinance, will cost $1,280. The lowest sewage connection fees, also for the smallest diameter meters, will cost $3,526.

Edmondson responded by saying that a number of studies had already been done, and that the matter  needed to “get settled.”

Edmondson said the initial fee, about $1,750 for water, had been offered at a 50 percent discount if paid in 90 days. And then another 15 percent was taken off the initial figure, as well.
