Fraser’s new board to take action on Byers Peak and traffic signal
April 17, 2012
Several resolutions will be discussed Wednesday night at the Fraser Board of Trustees meeting including Byers Peak Ranch annexation and possible signalization of Rendezvous Road.
Byers Peak Ranch submitted to board members and the town manager an updated proposed annexation agreement on March 12.
In an effort to resolve issues and move forward with the annexation, Byers Peak Ranch outlined its solutions in a letter from representative Jack Bestall.
“The revenues from fees, PIF’s, sales and property taxes coming from Byers Peak Ranch more than offset the Town’s costs and the development of Byers Peak Ranch will lay a foundation for more investment and additional revenue,” he wrote. “The addition of more users on the water and sewer systems will result in additional revenues to operate the system, which could result in the Town agreeing to reduce water and sewer rates for all users of the Town’s systems. The proximity of Byers Peak Ranch to the Town provides a very efficient service area; and the addition of a 6-acre maintenance facility, water augmentation facilities and addition to the Fraser Cemetery are clear benefits to the community.”
Also on the agenda, the Board of Trustees will need to fill Peggy Smith’s Trustee position and choose two representative for the East Grand School District Board of Education’s steering committee that will develop guidelines for opening and closing schools within the district.
