March 2008: Sewer Fee Rate Increase

Dear Russian River County Sanitation District Ratepayer:

Sewer fees going up!
How would you react if you received a notice that your income taxes were going up 5%, even though your income is the same or less than last year and living costs are increasing rapidly?  If you had the opportunity to say “no”, would you?

Any day now you will receive a notice from the Sonoma County Water Agency that your annual sewer fees are going up 5% to $987 per hookup.  You may have received it already, probably on bright colored paper with four sides; one notice for each property owned in the District. YOU CAN PROTEST THIS FEE INCREASE, which makes our system the third most expensive in the County and one of the most expensive in the State.
