  1. “…it’s time for the city to make a decision.”

    They obviously have no idea who they are dealing with.

  2. Seems simple enough – if the City can finance the fix with annual payments that are less than $34k, or $50k – build the extension.

    If not, pay the fine if it is the cheaper way to go.

  3. Making a decision based solely on short term price does not take into account the complexity of the issue. This is about the safety of our families and children to play on the beach, about the preservation of the northwest tradition of digging clams and foraging for shellfish and about Puget Sound habitat preservation and water quality. When you take those factors into account it makes paying the fine unthinkable and extending the pipe a minor improvement, however insufficient. The only real long-term solution that emerges is improving our waste processing capability. If you start putting a value on our children’s health, our tourist dollars and our traditional lifestyle (not to mention the many economically important services shellfish and intact ecosystems provide), a new waste treatment facility starts to look pretty cost effective.
