Hearing on hike in water, sewer rates

Grass Valley residents wanting to protest a proposed increase in water and sewer rates can attend a public hearing at 7 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall.

Those protesting the raise must submit their objection in writing to the City Clerk prior to the close of the public hearing, according to a notice mailed to homeowners.

The average property owner could pay at least $30 more for water yearly from 2008, and $111 more annually for sewer costs starting in November if the Grass Valley City Council approves the increase.

Among the reasons the city has cited for the increase includes the need to fund more than $45 million of improvements to the city’s water and sewer systems over the next 15 years.
