Sewer fees could go up under county annexation

County supervisors voted Tuesday to annex parts of unincorporated Santa Clarita Valley into the county's sewer maintenance district, which could result in higher fees for sewer service in those areas.

Residents of parts of Tesoro Del Valle, Fair Oaks Ranch, Newhall and West Creek were annexed into the Los Angeles County Consolidated Sewer Maintenance District under a resolution adopted by the Board of Supervisors.

The annexation grants the county rights to issue levies for sewer service through a many-tiered process. Annexing the areas was a first step in that process.

Residents affected by the county decision live in areas defined by Gail Farber, county director of public works, as communities in Newhall near Pine Street, Tesoro near Avenida Rancho Tesoro, and areas adjacent to Tesoro south/east of Copper Hill Road.

Other areas defined in the public works assessment are communities near Stoney Creek Road and Lost Canyon Road.

Other areas in Los Angeles County, including unincorporated areas of Calabasas, Carson, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills and Rancho Palos Verdes, were also annexed into the sewer maintenance district.

A public hearing on the annexation and the subsequent levies was set for Nov. 22, 2011.
