Assessment Adjustments (Change of Use Properties)

Assessment District 2014-1 was formed in 2015 to finance each property’s equitably shared cost of constructing the area’s first centralized sewer system and Wastewater Treatment and Reclamation Facility (the “Sewer Project”).  The methodology used was based off a property’s share benefit of the system and can be further explained in the Assessment District 2014-1 engineer’s report. Since formation, there have been some change of use in water use data and property classifications, resulting in corrections and adjustments that need to be applied; therefore, an adjustment to each levy is required to reflect the change in benefit received from using the sewer system.

Within the notice mailed out, a date and time were reflected for the public hearing, July 31, 2019 at 5:30 pm. The Resolution that was sent out to accompany the letter stated that the public hearing was on July 31, 2019 at 5:00 pm. Due to the conflicting time, the hearing will open at 5:00 pm and will resume at close after 5:30 pm.

Sewer Maintenance Fees

Below you will find the estimated monthly maintenance fees.  These fees are based on the amount of wastewater that is generated from a property or property type. Once a property is connected and using the system, maintenance fees will be collected.

Residential properties will be charged these maintenance fees through property taxes, while commercial properties will be charged based on monthly use of the system on monthly water bills.

Private Property Connection Cost

Begins at time of installing the connection

The private property connection cost varies.  For an average single-family residence, the connection cost is estimated to be approximately $3,000 but can be less or more depending on the complexity and length of your connection.

A 20-year, low interest Expanded Use Loan will be available for property owners to finance private property connection costs. This loan will be handled as an optional assessment.  Charges will begin immediately after connecting to the system and payments will be collected via property taxes. Property owners will be notified as to when the HDWD will begin accepting applications for the loan.
