What's Up in Stallion Springs?


Terry Schroepfer of Provost and Prichard presents a water rate study to the Stallion Springs CSD Board.

Terry Schroepfer of Provost and Prichard Consulting Group presented a report to the Stallion Springs CSD Board of Directors on the Water Rate Study at the April 18 meeting. The study covered the revenue requirements from utility rates to recover operating and maintenance expenses, a capital improvement program, satisfying bond covenants and policy objectives. One of the major new costs for water is the requirement for water banking and the associated costs.

Following the report, the board passed a resolution authorizing the staff to begin notification and mailing of majority protest information per Proposition 218 and set a Public Hearing date of June 20, 2017 at 6 p.m. in the Stallion Springs CSD Community Center.
