The Lake County Sanitation District Board of Directors will discuss a proposed resolution to receive, approve, and adopt the financial planning, revenue requirements, and rate-setting analysis for the Middletown sewer system at a meeting scheduled for 10:15 a.m. The board will be in session as the Lake County Sanitation District Board of Directors.
Since sewage rates were adopted for the district in 1995, according to Special Districts Administrator Scott Harter and Special Districts Deputy Administrator Jesus Salmeron’s report to the board, the rate structure has not been modified.
“Rates were scheduled to be analyzed when the Valley Fire broke out. Because of that and subsequent disasters, the examination and any recommended rate modification were postponed. Early in 2021, district employees worked with the California Rural Water Association to conduct a Financial Planning, Revenue Requirements, and Rate Setting Analysis to assess the district’s financial condition and, if necessary, support a rate increase that complies with Proposition 218.
According to the article, there will be no discussion or action on Tuesday on rate adjustments. Instead, a public meeting will be held on December 6 to discuss the rates.
The attached financial planning, revenue requirements, and rate-setting analyses are being submitted to the board on Tuesday for adoption in advance of the public hearing.
