ST. GEORGE — The public is invited to attend a meeting regarding possible financial models for the proposed Lake Powell Pipeline, Thursday, from 4-6 p.m. The primary focus of this meeting will be to lay a foundation for how the pipeline might be financed and what the implications could be.
The objective of this meeting is not to provide a final, definitive funding model, but to explore the options for funding. This discussion will hopefully help to answer questions like when the pipeline project should start, and what the fiscal implications would be for a project of this magnitude.
The committee members will be using real-time polling technology to narrow model assumptions.
Principal analyst for Applied Analysis Jeremy Aguero will be the presenter at the meeting. Applied Analysis is an economic, fiscal and policy research and analysis firm that has undertaken countless economic analyses throughout the world. Aguero’s areas of expertise include economic analysis, operational model development and fiscal impact analysis. He has testified on economic and fiscal issues before the United States Congress, state legislatures, county commissions and city councils. His research has been relied on by state supreme courts and cited by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and numerous other media outlets.
The meeting is put on by a committee from the Washington County Water Conservancy District.
The Community Integrated Resource Planning Advisory Committee – CIRPAC – started in 2012. CIRPAC is a 29-member citizen advisory committee that represents the residents of Washington County.
