NID Property Acquisitions: 
Centennial Spending Continues

 


This Wednesday at the NID Board Meeting, the Board will consider purchasing three more properties for Centennial Dam in closed session.

Here are the properties they are considering: 
The estimated total cost for these properties is more than $2 million. Despite cutting its budget by five percent and increasing water rates, NID still has $1.75 million to spend on Centennial and will have to transfer more in the 2019 Budget to cover the costs of these property purchases. 

Two of these three properties have already been discussed in prior meetings, and are now coming back for further consideration.

For more than a year, SYRCL and allies have consistently asked NID to cut Centennial spending, where legally possible. After spending over $14 million and depleting reserves, SYRCL is disappointed that NID did not prioritize fiscal responsibility and is continuing to spend District resources on a costly and environmentally destructive project. This includes purchasing properties for a project that has no approvals, no water rights, and no funding. 

Join us this Wednesday to ask NID to table property purchases, stop spending on Centennial where legally possible, and focus on fiscal responsibility for our community. 

To review SYRCL's reasons for cutting spending on Centennial, check out our request from Fall 2018. Support a move towards fiscal responsibility and join us this Wednesday.
