Tahoe Keys Marina, TKPOA legal battle not over
Though the water has been turned back on at the Tahoe Keys Marina since July 28, the disagreement over alleged unpaid bills is still not resolved.
Tahoe Keys Property Owners Association (TKPOA), which owns and operates the water company, cut off the water to the independently-owned marina on Wednesday, July 12, due to alleged unpaid bills totaling $80,000.
The marina claims the bill has been paid, and that TKPOA mis-allocated the funds to water quality — meaning weed control of aquatic invasive species — instead of water use.
The dispute is now making it’s way through court in El Dorado County. In the meantime, the marina and TKPOA worked out a deal to restore the water service as the case is pending. The details of this agreement have not been released, and neither party could be reached for comment.
According to the court calendar for the Superior Court of California County of El Dorado, the marina and TKPOA are not scheduled to be in front of a judge in South Lake Tahoe until Nov. 28.
