CCUD to hold public hearing about controversial building sale

NEW — 12:30 p.m. Jan. 29, 2015

The Coal Creek Utility District Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing Feb. 11 to hear comments regarding the utility’s controversial deal with the city of Newcastle.

Under the terms of the agreement, the city will pay $250,000 for a CCUD-owned building on 129th Avenue Southeast appraised at about $750,000. In addition, the city will agree not to assume the utility for the next 10 years.

In a hearing notice published in Thursday’s Seattle Times, the utility district says the city will use the building for “essential city operations relating to public works, including vehicle parking and maintenance.”

The public hearing begins at 6 p.m. in the utility’s district office, 6801 132nd Place S.E. Read more »
