VIDEO. From the Montara Water and Sewer District (MWSD) Directors’ meeting on Thursday, June 2nd, 2022 at 7:30pm by Zoom.
MWSD Chair, Scott Boyd, introduces the agenda item and MWSD General Manager, Clemens Heldmaier, reports.
Every year the Board adopts a Master Fee Schedule which contains updates to most charges and fees including the Water and Sewer connection charges. Staff has updated the connection charges and service fees based on the cost of construction and the consumer price index.
The new Sewer Service Charges approved through the 2020 Prop 218 process are also included in the proposed Master Fee Schedule. There are once again no water rate increases included in this year’s annual fee adjustments. The following are the major changes from the prior year:
The Sewer Service Charge rate is suggested to be set at tonight’s meeting to increase from $25.04 to $27.29. The increase is necessary to fund increased SAM assessments and capital improvement expenses.
Connection Charges and other construction related fees have been increased by 24.52% in accordance with the California Construction Cost Index. The Application Fees and other Miscellaneous Fees that depend on District staff for review have been increased by 5% in accordance with the U.S. Bureau of Labor’s Consumer Price Index (All Urban Consumers – SF-Bay).PH1
