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, rates, and charges for connecting to the publicly owned sewer system. Codifying the resolutions into a single document has benefitted both customers and staff by presenting the Service Rules in a contemporary language and in an organized format.

The proposed amendments to the Service Rules include clarifying language, and make certain changes to the Rates and Charges.  The changes being advanced include 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 proposed resolution was introduced to the Board on May 3, 2022.  On May 17, 2022, the Board set the public hearing for June 21, 2022 at 10:00 a.m.  A Business Impact Statement on the proposed resolution was accepted by the Board on June 7, 2022.

Notice of the public hearing was placed in the Las Vegas Review Journal on May 22, May 29, June 5, June 12, and June 19, 2022. The proposed resolution and amended Service Rules were also posted on the District website. 

If adopted, Resolution 22-002 codifies amendments to the District Service Rules effective on July 1, 2022.

This agenda item has been reviewed and approved by the District General Counsel.
