Proposed increases to the Utilities Water Supply Requirements (WSR) Cash-in-Lieu (CIL) Fee and other Utilities rates and fees
Utilities will recommend that City Council consider an increase to the WSR CIL fee to reflect that we, like most water providers across the state, are facing rising costs to acquire and develop water resources. Council is expected to decide on this recommendation and any other necessary rate changes on November 2 and 16, 2021. If approved, new rates would go into effect beginning January 1, 2022. The CIL fee is expected to increase by approximately 60% to $68,200 per 325,851 gallons of use at the tap. In addition, the Utilities water, wastewater, and stormwater plant investment fees (PIFs) are proposed to increase between 3-5%.
