In April 2020, the Buckley's Pass navigational channel opened for use by the boating community. Over the past several months, staff has completed an accounting of revenues received and expenditures associated with project construction, design, permitting, land acquisition, project management and assessment-related administrative costs. The reconciliation is attached and summarized below:
Original Project Estimate $2,737,192
Final Project Cost $2,660,836
Refund per Water Access Unit $27.50
Assessments run with the land and not an individual. As such, refund checks would be issued to the current property owner as listed in the county's records for those accounts which have been paid in full. This will take approximately 60 days to process. For accounts in which the assessments are being collected on the tax bill, the final installment (November 2021) will be adjusted accordingly.
