No vote sends message to W. Sac

By
From page A14 | February 10, 2013 |

A yes on I vote is a blank check. The ever-changing Woodland project numbers and policy modifications that we have been subjected to get the Measure I ballot measure across the finish line are not on the ballot and are not binding in the Woodland project’s future. The first-offer West Sacramento bottom line in the most recent “negotiations” was still below the projected cost of the Davis-Woodland surface water project.

The West Sac option is more directly connected to the actual volume of water purchased rather than to the more massive fixed costs of the Davis-Woodland new plant construction. This offers both more opportunity to reduce cost through reduced use (conservation) and more transparency about the cost of additional water to supply future large peripheral residential development projects.

The municipal West Sac water delivery system is a much better fit to Davis’ values than the private, for-profit water delivery system that the Davis-Woodland project envisions. West Sac readily recognized the renewed “negotiations” as political theater that was the Davis City Council’s response to a citizen-initiative threat. Only a no on I vote will demonstrate to West Sac that the Davis voters demand that our city and elected representatives make a sincere and vigorous effort to find a deal with West Sac to supply Davis’ future surface water needs.

Vote no on I.
Eugene Borack
Davis
