Proposed Sewer Rate Adjustment
On July 25, 2017, the City Council reviewed a draft of the 2017 Sewer Rate Study. The study analyzes the cost of providing sewer service and makes recommendations regarding the rate and structure in compliance with state law. The study found that a rate increase is recommended to ensure adequate funds are available to continue to maintain a safe and healthy sewer infrastructure. City Council approved staff’s recommendations, which included sending all property owners and customers a rate notice in compliance with Proposition 218, notices are being mailed on Friday, July 28, and setting a date to hold a public hearing on September 12, 2017.
