Fiscal Year 2009 Budget Committee
If resolution is approved - $0 (City will generate revenues as anticipated in the fiscal year 2009 adopted budget)
If resolution is not approved – decrease of revenues totaling approximately $120,000 in Environmental Services Fund and $160,000 in the Water Fund
Policy Question for Council Consideration:
Should the Master Fee Schedule be amended to include the five percent utility rate increase as adopted in the fiscal year 2009 budget, and as approved by the Utility Advisory Board?
The adopted fiscal year 2009 budget included a revenue assumption of a five percent rate increase in water, sewer, and stormwater rates effective January 1, 2009.
This rate increase was also approved at the October 15, 2008 Utility Advisory Board meeting.
Attachment A to the resolution includes the proposed increases highlighted in yellow; the affected sections of the “Master Fees & Charges” document are also highlighted for your reference.
Please note that the only proposed modifications to the fee schedule are for water, sewer, and stormwater rate increases.
Adopt the resolution modifying the West Linn Master Fees Schedule.
