YOLO COUNTY NEWS
99 CENTS

We want a mobile home rate class

By
From page A16 | March 03, 2013 |

A number of statements in Tom Sakash’s front-page story Wednesday about Rancho Yolo water rates require a response, but I must emphasize that what we have actually been saying continues to be true.

We have never contended that we pay more than other single-family homes. Rather we have been protesting the rate of increase as compared to the single-family rate of increase. The city’s rate consultant provided me cost data just a few days ago that confirms our view: the single-family rate increases 5.8 percent in 2013 and 18.8 percent in 2014 while the multi-family rate increases 19.2 percent and 47.1 percent for the same years.

So the seniors of Rancho Yolo, currently classified in the multi-family rate category, will have much higher percentage increases per residence in 2013 and 2014 than single-family residences.

The final statement by Matt Williams that Rancho Yolo would be charged in Tier 3 if we were under the single-family rate classification in no way appears to match the figures given to us by the city last week. Rancho Yolo’s average total monthly consumption would place us almost totally in Tier 1. To double-check our calculations, we are meeting again with the rate consultant.

Meanwhile, we continue to ask the City Council to be fair by placing Rancho Yolo in a mobile home rate class, as it does for all of our other utility charges.

President, Rancho Yolo board
