Prop 218 Public Hearing Continued to July 8, 2014

Post Date:06/17/2014 11:51 AM


PRESS RELEASE:  Proposition 218 Sewer Rate Adjustment Public Hearing Date Change

Contact: Public Works (650) 595-7425

Belmont, CA Due to scheduling difficulties, the City Council Meeting of June 24, 2014, will be continued to Tuesday July 8, 2014, at 7:00 p.m.  The protest period will also be extended to July 8, 2014.   The proposed sewer rate adjustments will be presented to the City Council for adoption at this meeting.

Keeping cost down is one of the City’s main concerns.  The City of Belmont is responsible for the operation, maintenance and improvements of the City’s sewer collection system.  The City is committed to providing reliable sewer service at the lowest possible cost while meeting legal requirements, growing State and Federal Clean Water standards, and protecting the environment.  Rising costs of meeting regulatory requirements, storm and sewer treatment, repair and replacement of an aging system are necessitating adjustments to the sewer rates.  Sewer fund expenditures and revenues must balance while maintaining a high level of service.
