Earlier today, Las Virgenes Municipal Water District publicly released the agenda for next week’s meeting. On that agenda is the final vote on the water tank. This is the vote to award contracts and start construction.

The agenda shows that the tank will now cost $11,500,000.00 — or said differently, every customer from Westlake Village to Calabasas will be paying $589 for the tank. The cost was 21% higher than the District’s most recent engineering estimate. It’s about double the originally indicated costs of the tank.

The agenda is available at http://www.lvmwd.com/Home/ShowDocument?id=3804

The meeting will be Tue at January 14, 2014 at 5pm. LVMWD Headquarters at 4232 Las Virgenes Road, Calabasas, CA 91302. The meeting will be open to public comment. You can get contact information for all Directors of the Board at https://westlakerevelations.com/how-to-contact-LVMWD
