Ranchland Utilities requested an engineering study (each association paid ~$5K for the MolzenCorbin study) to examine repair and maintenance costs, and make recommendations regarding future upgrades to the system to ensure that the entire community has irrigation water as growth continues.

Educate yourselves, residents! The character of our community is at stake. None of these costs were anticipated in the audit that was published at last year’s RVSCA annual meeting – nor are they in any reserve studies.
Ranchland utilities is proposing much needed “Homework Group” meetings and needs residents to participate. They have asked each association for $2000 to pay for these facilitated meetings. The RVSCA BOD decided at the April BOD meeting to ask R.U. to reduce the cost – indicating to some residents that they are not prioritizing this issue to the level it deserves. Contact your BOD and ask them to publish the final study and support the Homework Group meetings – then get out there and attend the meetings!
