Should the city of La Cañada pay for the temporary septic tank cesspools and grinder system south of Foothill? The city is doing nothing to get sewers in, and every day that goes by, more homeowners will be putting in expensive temporary systems and will be campaigning against sewers.
The city has money to pay for this item, since it is charging a huge fee for building permits. The average two-bedroom addition costs $12,000 in fees. This should give the city an adequate amount of money to pay for something that should not be a burden on these homeowners.
The residents south of Foothill have never voted on sewers. They voted only on the grinding system, which they turned down. A temporary system costs more than $50,000 and has to be maintained. Even these systems do not last forever.
