On January 11, 2016 the City Council adopted Resolution No. 16-01 to increase the maximum charges for water services, including the addition of Revenue Stabilization Charges. On November 14, 2016 the City Council determined that due to the changes in customers' water consumption, water supply conditions and State regulatory requirements governing water usage there is no current need for the Revenue Stabilization Charges to be imposed and adopted Resolution 16-69 authorizing the cessation of the Water Revenue Stabilization Charges effective with the December 2016 water bills. The Revenue Stabilization Charges can be reinstated in the future by action of the City Council if it determines there is a need, such as a very dry winter or severe restrictions imposed by the State.
The revised water rates would be utilized to maintain existing water service and are not committed to any specific project which may result in a potentially significant physical impact on the environment.
