(Victorville)– Voters in Spring Valley Lake will decide in November whether water, sewer, street sweeping and trash collection services should be handled by a locally controlled Community Services District. The Local Agency Formation Commission voted unanimously to put the proposal to voters and approved a report that found the CSD would be fiscally viable and able to maintain current service levels. The LAFCO report also found that the CSD would provide for the long-range planning necessary to provide for a higher level of service in the future.
If voters approve the ballot measure, existing CSA 64 services would transfer over to a new Community Services District elected by Spring Valley Lake voters.
The LAFCO report conclusion reads in part, “The current proposal for the Commission’s consideration, in reality, is fairly straightforward – a transfer of existing CSA 64 services (with minor exceptions) to a new Community Services District that offers residents increased local control through a locally elected Board of Directors … As outlined in the financial discussion within this report, the proposed CSD’s five-year financial forecast demonstrates the CSD is fiscally viable.” To read the report, click on http://www.sbcounty.gov/uploads/LAFCO/AgendaNotices/20200219/Item_10.pdf
