Public Notice - Rate Increases

Post Date:07/11/2011

On August 4, 2011 the Carson City Board of Supervisors, on first reading, will consider the adoption of amendments to four ordinances which will increase sewer, water, right-of-way toll, electric and natural gas business license (franchise) fees and landfill rates and fees.

The increase of sewer service rates is proposed to be 14% (1% for operations and 13% for capital program debt service) and would be effective on bills dated on or after September 1, 2011. The average residential increase would be approximately $3.48 per month.

The increase in water service rates is proposed to be 5% (1% for operations and 4% for capital program debt service) and would be effective on bills dated on or after September 1, 2011. The average residential increase would be approximately $1.14 per month.

The Right-of-Way Tolls for Water and Sewer will be increased from 1% to 2% on bills dated on or after September 1, 2011. This would be approximately $0.50 per month more on a residential combined water and sewer bill.

The increase in electric and natural gas business license (franchise) fees are proposed to be 1% and 0.5 % respectively. The average residential increase for both fees would be approximately $2.50 per month.

The increase to landfill fees vary according to category and will become effective September 1, 2011. The rate will generally increase $3.00 per ton for normal residential household type waste. Other fees and categories have been consolidated.
