Wellington will not waive fees for Habitat

The Wellington City Council decided unanimously Wednesday to deny a request from Habitat for Humanity for a waiver on culinary and secondary water connection fees on a new home.

Carolyn Randall appeared before the council on behalf of the nonprofit group. Councilmen Kirt Tatton and Pete Yakovich expressed concern that, even though Habitat is a worthy cause, the city would set a precedent by granting a waiver to one homeowner.

The city did not waive fees on a previous Habitat home in town, and does not grant breaks to others who connect to the city systems, they explained.

Connection fees are about $300 each for culinary and secondary water.
