Del Mar OKs Clean Water
October 2008 | by Bud Emerson

The clean water ballots have been counted, and voters approved both measures overwhelmingly.  The first measure to confirm the rates we have been paying up to this time was supported by 68.8%. That amounts to an average household payment of less than $11 per month. The second measure to approve rates for the future was supported by 62.4%. That amounts to an average household payment of less than $14 per month.

Had either one of these measures failed to win approval, we would still be legally obligated to fund the costs of the clean-water program. Payment would have to come from our General Fund and taken from other vital services such as lifeguard, fire protection, or public works.
   
Mayor David Druker expressed his gratitude to the voters, “The City Council and City Hall Staff thanks the citizens of Del Mar for approving these measures. We are all very appreciative of the large number of ballots returned and that we will be able to comply with the Clean Water Act provisions without reducing our services in other areas.”
