Town’s efforts may fail

EL DORADO HILLS- A movement to make this El Dorado County town independent may falter if supporters of incorporation don’t raise enough money.

County supervisors voted against giving the city $40,000 last week to pay for a financial study on the feasibility of becoming a separate city. The study is needed before the issue can be decided by voters.

”It puts the November election in jeopardy. Unless we can turn this around with a quick infusion of money, we will not make the November election,” said Norm Rowett, a supporter of the El Dorado Hills cityhood movement.

Supporters say they could be forced to start the process over unless the El Dorado County Local Agency Formation Commission agrees to extend a deadline for a cityhood application later this month.
