Council should read judge’s order


This is a reminder to the residents of Homer of the upcoming city council meeting to be held on Monday, July 28, at 6 p.m. Condo owners and other property owners interested in hearing the city manager’s report on the Homer natural gas line and recommendations on the method of assessing condos should plan to attend. 

The only recommendation that the council should back is one that will treat lots that contain condominiums on them the same as every other lot in the city, and charge just one assessment. To back any other plan would be to violate Judge Hugelet’s order and will open the floodgates for lawsuits against the city of Homer, city council members and the city manager. Let’s not waste taxpayers’ money fighting in court over something that has already been settled in court by a judge. 

I urge our city council members to read the court order and act to ensure that the city of Homer is compliant with Judge Hugelet’s order.
