THUNDERBIRD COUNTY WATER DISTRICT
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Thursday, August 18, 2022 at 6:00 PM at the District office located at
24737 Standing Rock Road, Apple Valley, California.
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Board of Directors of the Thunderbird County Water District will hold a public hearing to receive public comment on the proposed increases. The proposed changes are needed to meet the operating expenses of the District. The following shows the existing and the proposed fee changes.
Changes Current Proposed
Security Deposit $144.00 Two billing cycles
Will/Will Not Serve Letter $ 50.00 $ 75.00
Credit/Debit Card convenience fee $ 4.00 $ 4.75
Annual Standby Fee $ 30.00 $ 35.00
The last increase of these funds was in 2010, 12 years ago. Our rates remain one of the County’s lowest. The purpose of these proposed rate increases is to accommodate today’s costs for labor and materials. Our initial water system was established 55 years ago in 1967. We are making repairs and/or replacements when possible and doing our part to keep the costs as low as possible to our customers. We are applying for Grants or Loans for small, Rural Water Districts to help with the more expensive portions of our system.
