July Rate Increase Deferred

Post Date:06/22/2020 5:00 PM

We understand the financial and health impacts that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought upon our community.  The Utilities Department is continuing to serve you through this difficult time.

Rate Increase on Hold

In June 2019, the City Council adopted a two-year water and wastewater rate increase.  The 2019 increase was implemented on July 1, 2019. The 2020 rate increase was scheduled for July 1, 2020, but will be deferred for now.

The 2020 rate increase has already been subject to the legally required Proposition 218 notification process and approved by the City Council.

When Can I Expect an Update?

 The City will revisit whether to proceed with the rate increase at a Council meeting in October.  In any case, customers would have at least a two-month advance notice of the increase.
