REGULAR MEETING OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Wednesday, August 2, 2017, 6pm
7811 University Avenue, La Mesa, CA 91942-0427
Interesting Agenda Items:
Item 6. (pdf Page 40) Proposed Fiscal Year 2017-18 Water Rate Adjustments
What a difference a new board makes – I am very proud – GREAT Teamwork!
As I mentioned in my May email/blog this board worked hard with staff and with the blessing of rain to keep the budget and future water rates lower than the previously Board approved October 2015 11.8% increase (I voted NO) down to an overall 3.9% increase (down from May’s anticipated 4.1%) which includes the San Diego County Water Authority 2.3% increase! Helix budget increase was 1.6% increase due to mainly capital costs to support District Infrastructure. Please note, I still want to have a Board Policy discussion on our use and pay back of the Rate Stabilization Fund before our next budget discussion…
As always, I welcome your comments and feedback.
