Vallecitos Board to explore options to recover pump zone charges
At the regular Board of Directors meeting on March 15, 2017, Vallecitos' Board discussed changing the District's pump zone charges. These surcharges are intended to recover the additional energy costs required to pump water to customers located at higher elevations within the District's service area.
No decision was made during this meeting. Instead, the Board decided to host a workshop to explore alternatives to recover these costs. At the meeting, staff will seek direction on the Board’s preferred methodology of pump charge allocation as well as direction as to when the surcharges should become effective and whether there should be a phased implementation for the revised surcharges.
The workshop is scheduled for Thursday, April 20 at 5:00 pm. at the District's headquarters at 201 Vallecitos de Oro in San Marcos. All Vallecitos customers will receive a letter informing them of the upcoming meeting. The public is welcome to attend to voice any concerns.
