Special Notice for RRCSD Ratepayers!!
By Brenda Adelman
On Monday, March 2, 2009, the Sonoma County Water Agency mailed out a notice to all ratepayers in the Russian River County Sanitation District announcing an increase of annual sewer fees to $1036 per hookup. This is about 5% more than last year. This fee will appear on your 2010 Property Tax Bill that comes out next October.
Under Proposition 218, ratepayers can protest this fee increase by signing the form on the notice (on bright colored paper) and returning it to the Russian River County Sanitation District in care of the Sonoma County Water Agency (address on mailer). If 51% of the property owners protest, the fee cannot be charged. Approximately 1200 protests are needed for this to happen.
