WATER RATE REFUND SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT

Post Date:10/09/2017 12:22 PM

Updated as of 10/31/2017 ...

On April 25, 2017, the City was sued over the residential water rate structure. The City and the proponents of the lawsuit have reached a preliminary settlement.

A copy of the Settlement Agreement can be viewed from the link below.  The final agreement is consistent with the terms described in the below fact sheet.

The City will further apprise rate payers on the timing and process for refunds and how the settlement may affect individual residential users. A Frequently Asked Questions page (link below) has been set up to give rate payers additional details and to keep them apprised of the refund process. 

Although not required by the draft Settlement Agreement, City Council will also be addressing refunds to non-residential rate payers at their November 7th Special Work Session.
