One of the city’s largest water consumers is poised to protest Vallejo’s proposed water rate increase.
During its meeting Wednesday, the Vallejo City Unified School District Board of Education will receive information on submitting letters of protest regarding a proposed water increase, which, if approved by the city council, will require the district to pay $1.2 million annually for water by 2020. Currently, the district pays $493,261 annually for water.
The district has the opportunity to submit a protest letter for each of the 56 properties owned by VCUSD.
The city’s Water Division is seeking $85 million or 80 percent of full funding needed to reduce deferred maintenance to Vallejo’s aging water system over the next 10 years.
