Measure Q was a request by the Council to buy into a new shared sewer export line, to expand Livermore’s sewage capacity. CBG argued against it because:
1. It was too expensive, and we hate wasting tax dollars
2. Livermore had a lot of capacity left in the existing system, and we would likely never need any more
The measure failed. Eventually, Livermore did buy some more capacity but at a much lower price.
