It is proposed that the Heceta Water People’s Utility District be formed, and its boundaries shall be identical to the current boundaries of the Heceta Water District, and shall be authorized to impose a special levy in the sum of $25,000 as required by ORS 261.113 to finance the required engineer’s report on revenue bonds for the acquisition or construction of the initial utility system.  In the event the people within any one or more municipalities within the proposed district vote against its formation, then that portion of the district which votes in favor of the formation of the Hecets Water People’s may be organized into the district.
