Washburn Sewer & Water System Refunds

Early Payoff
Refunds are due to some owners of property using the Washburn Sewer System who paid off the bond fees early in a lump sum payment. It has come to our attention that the amortization schedule that was
used to determine the lump sum payment was for a period of 22 years instead of 20 years as noted in the Ordinance.

Sewer Bond refunds were issued to these same owners last year due to the discovery of an error with the beginning payment date on the original amortization schedule. The new refund amount includes
all refunds not previously claimed.

Refunds are due to some owners of property using the Washburn Water System because (a) bond fee payments for those properties were assessed for a longer term than was required, or (b) the amortization schedule used for early payoffs was in error.
