Online News Quarterly –January 2015



THANK YOU to all our customers who sent cards and brought in Delicious Goodies over the Holidays!


RATES WILL BE INCREASING- Our system has a built in annual rate increase based on the same COLA increase as Social Security. This was decided by the public at a public hearing held in 2005. The Board had opted to defer increases in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 with the understanding that these figures may be factored into future increases if necessary. After careful review of our Budget it was decided that this would be looked at for 2015. Social Security COLA increases were as follows

2011-0%         2012-3.6%      2013-1.7%      2014-1.5%      2015-1.7%      Total=8.5%


It was decided at the December 11, 2014, Board Meeting of the Stagecoach General Improvement District to use the allowed increase of 8% effective January 1st, 2015. The base rate for residential water usage up to 25,000 gallons will be $54.00. You will see this $4.00 increase beginning on February 2015 bill. The base commercial rate for a 2in meter will be $122.80.
