Council Sends Revisions to CBFR to URAC (Multimedia)

Equity Chart - SFR New CBFR-12 vs CBFR-6One week before the election that may decide the fate of the city’s surface water project, the city council voted unanimously to direct the URAC (Utility Rate Advisory Committee) to examine the three rate systems that are proposed – CBFR, Bartle Wells, and a hybrid.

Councilmember Brett Lee directed that they could not consider a rate structure with a look-back and wants to see both a tiered and no-tiered option. Councilmember Lee stated clearly, “The current CBFR is precluded because it has the look-back.” He indicated that the hybrid structure proposed during public comment by Donna Lemongello and Matt Williams was acceptable.

Below are four public comments from Michael Harrington, John Munn, Sue Greenwald, and Donna Lemongello and Matt Williams’ PowerPoint presentation.  Also are comments by Brett Lee laying out his thoughts and concerns about the rate structure.
