County to start determining how much a sewer will cost Los Osos residents

While a county task force analyzes potential sites for a sewer in Los Osos, officials will take steps toward determining how much a sewer will likely cost ratepayers.

Deputy Director of Public Works Paavo Ogren said a staff accountant will soon start modeling rates based on 30-year cost projections.

That’s aside from staff working on ways to secure state and federal grant funding, and loan money.

The county accountant charged with modeling rates will not be formulating a specific rate structure but rather dollar ranges that would determine the monthly impact on rate payers, according to Ogren.

The proposed cost estimates are expected to be available in late July.
