This is an excerpt of part three of the July 27, 2017 UBID board meeting discussing the costs related to building a permanent water treatment facility on the land up by Langley Lake.
For all the times these people have thrown out ridiculous amounts without ANY RESEARCH about the cost to even get to this piece of property have been from $500,000 to $700,000. They have stated the road must be brought up to highway standards and again their statements are based on whatever they have been told. They have done zero research.
I have been told the estimate for the road work to the treatment site at the highway was between $40,000 to $80,000 and that was negotiable.
Remember when candidate Ted Haraldson told the community it would cost $500,000. each for pressure reducing valves if we built on the land by Langley Lake? Absolutely wrong! Ted also claimed the site was a swamp.
I suspect the figures these guys spout come right from the lips of Brian McMahon, VP. Kensington Island Properties aka 34083 Yukon Inc.
This is an excerpt from KIP’s own consultants report Feb. 1 2008. So why is KIP so opposed to UBID building a permanent water treatment facility on the very piece of property identified in the report?
If there had been a piece of land suitable within the KIP development, it would have been mentioned in this report. The report already states the existing location does not provide adequate pressure – and we’re not increasing the elevation by going across McLeod Rd at Musgrave.
