City of San Diego Water Rate Increases
All City of San Diego residential water account addresses
received a Notice of Public Hearing on Proposed Water Rate Increases in the mail
the beginning of October.
Here is the information about the proposed rates in case
you misplaced your notice -
Please print and fill out the water rate protest form and
mail it to the City so our City Council will not allow a 40% water rate
increase. The form must be signed by the person who is on the water bill and 1
form per address. The form must be received received by the City no later than
November 16, 2015.
One form per household and be signed by the person whose
name is on the water bill.
Interested parties can comment on the proposed rates.
California Constitution Article XIII D section 6 (Proposition 218) prohibits the
City from implementing the new rates if a majority of the affected property
owners or tenants file written protests opposing the rates before the end of the
public hearing. Only one written protest per affected property will be counted
towards the majority protest. Written protests must be received by the City
Clerk, City of San Diego, Mail Station No. 2P, City Administration Building, 202
C Street, San Diego, CA 92101, before the end of the public hearing which is
scheduled for 10:00 a.m., November 17, 2015. Each protest must identify the
affected property (by street address or Assessor’s Parcel Number) and include
the signature of the property owner or utility customer of record. In compliance
with Proposition 218, e-mail protests will not be accepted. Fax protests will
also not be accepted. Although oral comments at the public hearing will not
qualify as formal protests unless accompanied by a written protest, the City
Council welcomes input from the community during the public hearing.
