The Saratoga Sun -

Ordinance 829 approved by council

New sewer rates begin July 31


Ordinance 829 passed on the third reading at the Feb. 17 Saratoga Town Council with little fanfare. The ordinance, which had met opposition in previous meetings did not face any opposition during the final reading.

The resolution puts apartment buildings and mobile homes in residential for sewer rather than as commercial, which means that each apartment will be charged a sewer fee. In the Feb. 18 edition

of the Saratoga Sun, it was

mistakenly reported that

apartments would be considered

commercial and pay 80

percent of the water usage.

This is how apartments are

now currently billed.

Guy Jansa, of Jansa Apartments,

has been vocal in past

meetings citing the ordinance

is prejudiced against

apartment buildings.

Platte Valley Community

Center executive director

Joe Elder reported that the

gym floor is going to cost

more than originally anticipated

and that work will begin

around May 4. The gym

floor project is scheduled to

end in July but Elder told the

council he believed it would

be done well before the July


The council also approved

a $500 membership to

the Saratoga Platte Valley

Chamber of Commerce.

Councilman Will Faust said

he saw this as an opportunity

to foster “the spirit of

working together.” In the

Feb. 3 meeting, chamber

board member Ty Trevillyan

had requested the town

become a member at the

$3,250 (double check) rate.

Faust explained the town

went with one of the lower

tiers to see how the town

benefits from the membership.

The next Saratoga Town

Council meeting is scheduled

at 6 p.m., March 3 at

the Saratoga Town Hall.
