New Castle tackles CLEER request

NEW CASTLE — The town council on Tuesday night will meet on a range of topics including a request from CLEER (Clean Energy Economy for the Region), an energy efficiency advocacy organization, for additional funding for CLEER’s 2014 operations.

The council also will discuss tap fees in general and, in particular, an agreement with the developers of the Castle Valley Ranch project regarding a “guarantee” that the project would generate $90,000 a year in water and tap fee revenues. If the tap fee total falls short in any year, according to the agreement, the developers are to pay the difference.

According to a letter from town attorney David McConaughy, the council will discuss whether to retain this agreement or change it in some way.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in Town Hall, 450 W. Main St., and the public is encouraged to attend.
