BACKGROUND: 

On December 20, 2016, the Board adopted the District Service Rules, codifying the various customer and regulatory resolutions dating back to 1956. The Service Rules provide a single document for customers to find the rules regarding connecting to the publicly owned sewer system, as well as the rates and charges. Codifying the resolutions into a single document has benefitted both customers and staff by presenting the material in a contemporary language and an organized format.

A Citizen’s Advisory Committee (CAC) was convened to review the District operations and finances, and consider the Service Rule amendments that make certain changes to the Rates and Charges. The changes being advanced, which require Board approval, follow the CAC’s recommendations regarding future reclaimed water sales and rates, and the institution of an administrative fee to process alternative sewer service applications. Additionally, the proposed Service Rule changes include clarifications and amendments addressing the County's initiative on affordable housing, as set forth in the Resolution of the County of Clark to Reduce Development Fees to Incentivize the Development of Affordable Housing, passed by the Board on March 16, 2021.

The District plans to advance the amended Service Rules for Board approval to be effective on July 1, 2022. This agenda item has been reviewed and approved by the District General Counsel.
