Text of measure
Question on the ballot:
Annexes the entire city limits of Johnson City into the Clackamas River Water District (District) as of July 1, 2013.
Johnson City currently obtains its water from the Clackamas River Water District. Even though Johnson City is surrounded by the boundaries of the District, it is not a part of the District. Annexation into the District would result in little change for the residents of the City of Johnson City, except it would ensure continued water supply for the residents of Johnson City from the District and allow the citizens of Johnson City an opportunity to participate in the District
This measure would expand the boundaries of Clackamas River Water District (CRW) to include all of the territory within the City of Johnson City, Oregon (City). Although the City is surrounded by CRW, the City is not a part of CRW. Water for City residents is currently supplied by CRW; annexation into CRW would make City residents also residents of CRW and it would be more difficult for CRW to cancel water service. On February 14th the Board of CRW adopted a resolution approving the request of the City to annex into the CRW, so the annexation is welcomed by CRW.
Annexation into the CRW would result in little change for the residents of the City, except it would ensure continued water supply for the residents of the City from the CRW and allow the citizens of Johnson City an opportunity to participate in the CRW. City water service will be maintained largely as it is provided today. The City Council has determined that it is in the best interests of the residents of the City and CRW to request the CRW and voters of the City to annex the City into the CRW and, therefore, has placed this measure before the voters of the City.
