LID suit dismissed

SAGLE — A landowner is dropping his challenge of a Local Improvement District imposed by the Sagle Valley Water & Sewer District.

Counsel for Dennis McIntire and the district stipulated to a dismissal earlier this month and Judge Jeff Brudie granted the motion on Nov. 21, documents in 1st District Court show.

McIntire argued in the suit that the district acted beyond its authority and failed to follow state law.

The LID assesses landowners a tax to pay for the installation of 330,000-gallon reservoir, approximately 10 miles of water main and upgrades to three wells.

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality awarded the district a $2.3 million low-interest loan in 2007 to expand district’s existing system and absorb two other neighborhood water systems. The loan carries a 2-percent interest rate and is payable over 20 years.
