Proposed Los Altos Sewer Fee Increases

The letter from the city of Los Altos (CA) regarding the proposed Los Altos sewer fee increase is posted here in its entirety.  I have not edited it in any way. If this passes, the annual fixed service charge per “equivalent dwelling unit” will rise by 97.65% (14.60% per year).  The volumetric rate (per hundred cubic feet of water use, about 728 gallons) increases by 138.84% (19.02% per year).  Talk about inflation …

Here’s the summary table followed by the full letter.  The letter has some examples on the second page.  Click here for my Excel workbook showing the data and percentage increase calculations.
