Prop 218 Notice 2020

PROPOSED ADOPTION OF NEW SEWER RATE STRUCTURE AND INCREASES TO SEWER FEES

New sewer rate structure:

Ironhouse Sanitary District (ISD) is proposing to adopt a new rate structure. This proposed rate structure adjusts the fees for existing user classes and establishes new user classes. 

ISD analyzed the costs to provide services for residential, commercial, and industrial sewer discharges. 

  • The adjustment ensures that ISD is properly assessing sewer customers their proper share based on the amount and type of wastewater they discharge. 
  • Proposed fees are adjusted for each user class to ensure that they are equitable and appropriate. 
  • Sewer fees for some user classes will be reduced.

Proposed increase for Infrastructure Improvements: 

The sewer rate study also determined the need for increases to sewer service rates. The District has not raised rates in five years. The proposed rates represent the lowest increase possible to fund the necessary capital improvements identified within the next five years. 

A Public Hearing on the proposed wastewater service rates will be held on June 16, 2020, at 6:00 p.m., at the ISD office located at 450 Walnut Meadows Drive, Oakley, and via teleconference. ISD Board of Directors will hear and consider all oral and written testimony concerning the proposed wastewater service rates.
