Commissioners take no action on MSBU

Published: Friday, March 29, 2013 at 10:11 AM.

The primary services the commissioners want to keep going for Sunny Hills are street lights and mowing the right-of-ways on the main boulevards.

Zuricka said the Sunny Hills group strongly recommends that the dissolution be done as soon as possible.

Zuricka also recommended two members of the advisory board should stay in place to monitor the disbursement of the money.

Gothard suggested the community meeting in Sunny Hills, and she, along with Commissioner Todd Abbott and County Manager Steve Joyner, met with Sunny Hills residents on March 14 to hear the community’s ideas about the future of the MSBU.

“I came away from that meeting seeing two basic options,” Gothard said.

Option one would be to put all the MSBU assessment funds toward paying off the debt, then discontinue the assessments. Another option would be to pay off the debt, then keep a reduced assessment in place to provide funds to keep services such as mowing and street lights.

Both options Gothard mentioned included using as much of the MSBU assessment funds as possible to pay off the debt by 2016. The MSBU cannot be totally dismantled by the county until the debt is paid off, since it was created by ordinance to raise funds which were used to pay for road repairs.
