Lois Larue, 3136 Barkentine Road, asked why the Abalone Cove Sewer Fee was placed on the Regular City Council Agenda and the Abalone Cove Sewer Improvement item was placed on the RDA Agenda.

Agency Attorney Lynch stated that Redevelopment Agencies are not authorized by law to perform maintenance, that only the City can maintain the sewers.

Agency Attorney Lynch stated that $25,000 of the $36,740 fee charged was for the appraisals leading up to the potential acquisition, but that there were also several lawsuits.
