2009 User Rate Study Update

The Board authorized an update of the User Rate Study (URS) in 2009. Staff recommended the update since expenses were lower in 2008 and 2009 than projected in the 2007 study. Also, the District was awarded a $924,700 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) grant that reduced the 2009 bond closing by half thereby reducing debt payments. The 2009 Update proposed lower rate increases than those recommended in the 2007 URS.

Rate increases are projected through 2013 in the 2009 URS.

2007 User Rate Study

The Board hired a consultant to conduct a User Rate Study to coincide with the 2007 Capital Improvement Plan Update. The User Rate Study prepared by the Michael D. Peroo Accounting Firm analyzes the effect of projected CIP expenditures on the finances of the Sewer District and provides recommendations on proposed rate increases to fund the additional debt as well as administrative, operating and maintenance costs. The study assumes an annual customer growth of 2% and a 3% inflation rate on expenses. Construction costs are financed at the State Revolving Fund interest rate of roughly 2.5%. Short term loans to cover engineering and easement acquisition costs assume a 5% interest rate.
