EID “sky-high” Sewer rates wrongfully raised in 2011

October 7, 2011

EID’s “All-in” Sewer rates are 95% to 125% higher than the four surrounding Sewer districts of Folsom, South Tahoe, Citrus Heights, and Sacramento. 
(As a Special district, EID gets Property Tax revenues to subsidize rates, but deceptively fails to include these subsidies when presenting comparisons of rates/full costs vs. near-by districts.)

EID budgeted a 3.6% DECREASE in its 2011 Sewer Operations budget, but none-the-less implemented a second $101 annual residential Sewer rate increase in January 2011, just ten months after a first $101 increase in March 2010.  (In contrast, residential Water rates increased a half as much $50 annual increase despite the 34% Water budget INCREASE.)
