CITY OF MT. SHASTA NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City of Mt. Shasta will hold a Public Hearing at a Special Meeting on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at the hour of 5:30 p.m. or as soon thereafter as possible at the Recreation and Parks District Upper Lodge at Mt. Shasta City Park, located at 1315 Nixon Road, Mt. Shasta, California.

PROPOSITION 218 PUBLIC NOTICE OF PROPOSED WATER AND WASTEWATER RATE CHANGES

The Mt. Shasta City Council has determined there is a need to adjust water and wastewater rates to generate the necessary revenue to operate and maintain these services. As rates are the primary source of revenue to operate, maintain, and fund capital improvement projects, the City Council wishes to establish a fair and equitable rate structure that will accomplish these objectives.

Property owners may comment on the proposed rates. California Constitution Article XIII D Section 6 (Proposition 218) prohibits the City from implementing new rates if a majority of the affected property owners file written protests opposing the rates before the end of the public hearing. In the event of a majority protest, as defined in Article XIII D, Section 6, it will result in the fees NOT being imposed.

Only one written protest per affected property will be counted toward the majority protest. Written protests must be received by the City Clerk, 305 N. Mt. Shasta Boulevard, Mt. Shasta, California 96067, before the end of the public hearing which is scheduled for 5:30 p.m., May 30, 2017. All protests will be tabulated at that time.

Each protest must identify the proposed rate being protested (water and/or wastewater), the affected property (by street address and Assessor’s Parcel Number) and include the signature of the customer or property owner. In compliance with Proposition 218, e-mail and fax protests will not be accepted. Although the City Council welcomes input from the community, oral comments at the public hearing will not qualify as formal protests unless accompanied by a written protest.

For additional information you may contact City Hall at 305 N. Mt. Shasta Blvd. or by calling (530) 926-7510.
