Paradise water rates going up in 2016

Dec 9, 2015 2:50 PM by News Staff

Under state orders to conserve water, Paradise residents have risen to the challenge, and now it will cost them.

The Paradise Irrigation District adopted a new rate plan Tuesday night. It comes as a response to the revenue lost during mandatory drought conservation, and was adopted by the board of directors with a 4-1 vote.

The proposal puts all residential customers on an allotment of 13 water units for $54.31, with tiered penalties if they use more. The plan also includes an automatic service charge in 2018 and 2020.

Customers can expect to receive a written notice in the mail later this month.

A public hearing will be held on January 29 at 5 p.m. in the Paradise Irrigation District Boardroom. Community members are invited to come with any questions or concerns.

The new rates will not be implemented until after the January 29 hearing.
