The Village of Salado Board of Aldermen will conduct the first of two public hearings to consider the land use assumptions and capital improvements plan under which impact fees may be imposed for new or expanded services in certain areas for service received from the Village’s wastewater utility.
The first public hearing will be 6 p.m. May 29 at the Village of Salado Municipal Building, 301 N Stagecoach Rd.
The areas in the proposed impact fee area are the areas where the fees, if enacted, may be levied in-full or in-part, depending on the service arrangement and in no way obligates the Village to extend utility service beyond its incorporated area.
This first hearing is to provide for public input as to the land use and capital improvements assumptions that will underlie a pending calculation of the impact fees. A second Public Hearing will be held at a later date to review the draft fee calculations. The exact amount of the impact fees to be levied, at or below the maximum, will be determined by the Salado Board of Aldermen subsequent to the second Public Hearing.
The Village of Salado Wastewater Impact Fee Study Committee at their April 12 meeting adopted the final report prepared by HDR Engineering, Inc. and recommended an Impact Fee of $3,750 per Living Unit Equivalent (LUE).
The five-member committee of Chairman Jay Ritch, Denver Mills, Joe Price, Ted Williamson and Jim Lassiter voted unanimously to adopt the study with its maximum recommended rate of $5,125 per LUE and to recommend the lower Impact Fee of $3,750.
Aldermen may adopt an Impact Fee up to the maximum of $5,125.
Any member of the public has the right to appear at the hearing and present evidence for or against the land use assumptions and capital improvements plan. Information on land uses and utility capital improvements is available from City Staff at the Salado City Hall, located at301 N. Stagecoach, Salado, Texas, from 8 am to 5 pm weekdays.
