FIRST PROPOSAL – Approve a Line of Credit for financing the Chemeketa Park Water Storage and Drought Relief Grant Project

The Chemeketa Park Water Storage and Drought Relief Grant Project (a $1.8M grant), comes with some financial obligations for CPMWC. The Grant terms state that the Department of Water Resources (DWR) will reimburse expenses only after they are already paid for by CPMWC. In order to pay for those expenses, CPMWC will need to procure a line of credit. Therefore, the budget must include about $35,000 over the next two years for financing fees, which is $17,500/year. The line of credit finance fees would most likely begin October, 2023, and continue through the end of the project, which is December, 2024.

SECOND PROPOSAL – Set the base monthly assessment at $212 per connection.

Currently, each member pays a monthly assessment of $165 per connection. At the Annual Meeting, the Board of Directors is asking the membership to consider increasing the monthly rate to $212 per connection, a monthly increase of $47. It is estimated that this will result in $87,420 of additional annual revenue.

The increase is to keep up with inflation, fund the interest on the line of credit for the $1.8M grant project for our storage tanks, and replenish/increase the Emergency Fund over the next 5 years.

Please CONSERVE WATER USAGE until Wednesday, March 1st


Hello Neighbors,

We are asking residents to please CONSERVE WATER for the next several days to give our water source, Moody Gulch, a chance to clear.  The weather report calls for more rain over the next few days with Wednesday, March 1st being our first sunny day.  We cannot process water during rainstorms because of the turbidity.  If we cannot keep up with demand, we will need to pay for water from the Montevina Pipeline.  While the pipeline is a great alternate source for Chemeketa Park, it costs $$$.

Thank you for your efforts.  They are appreciated by all.
