Kreklau’s $23,000 sewer debt might be forgiven
Abbotsford aldermen recently discovered a discrepancy of almost $23,000 in what Larry Kreklau owes the city for special assessments, and a proposal to forgive that amount will be aired at a public hearing July 9. During recent further investiga tion of the issue by the Special Ass essment Committee, it was discovered that Kreklau was charged the full cost for storm sewer constructed on his development. Two other developments by Christensen and Schilling, done about the same time as Kreklau’s, were only charged half-price for storm sewer, with the city footing the other half of the cost.
Don Melvin, chairman of the committee, said at Mondy’s council meeting that the committee recommends forgiving that half of the storm sewer cost that Kreklau was charged for, along with the interest accrued over the past 10 years, and further urged a public hearing on the matter.
Kreklau was charged $25,476.39 for the storm sewer. Half of that is $12,738.20. Interest rates varying from 4% to 9.5% were charged on that money through the years, with the result that the storm sewer costs which could be forgiven are $22,859.94.
“It’s not giving him a special break. It’s treating him the same as Christensen and Schilling were treated. We feel it’s not only fair, but it will give him some leeway to sell his property,” Ald. Melvin said.
The council approved holding a hearing for the proposal.
