What Are the Next Steps?

First, a public hearing on the proposed increase will be held on November 9, 2021, at 5 p.m.  

Second, after the public hearing, and if there is not a majority protest, the District's Board of Trustees will consider whether to move the proposal forward. 

Third, assuming the Board decides to move the proposal forward, the District will send a mailed ballot to all property owners, asking them to vote "yes" or "no" on this proposed increase. It is anticipated that the ballots would be mailed in March 2022.

Fourth, if approved by voters, the rate increase to go into effect beginning July 1, 2022 and be placed on the 2022-2023 property tax assessment (for almost all customers).
