Sedona Sewer Rates Increase in July


This article written and submitted by City of Sedona staff.

Sedona AZ (July 2, 2013) – The monthly sewer rate for City of Sedona sewer customers will increase for the new fiscal year beginning July 1, 2013. Because the City bills in arrears, customers will see this increase reflected in the July billing, which is processed at the end of July.

The rate increase is 10%. For example, the monthly bill for a single-family home with low flow fixtures will increase from a monthly fee of $42.94 to $47.24.

This is the third year for the annual rate increase. In April 2010, the City Council held a public hearing regarding wastewater rate increases. At that time, they approved a new five-year plan, which implemented changes to the rate structure of the wastewater fee schedule.

This was the first rate increase in fourteen years. The City is in the process of updating this five-year wastewater plan.

    Hold onto your hats, kids.

    Now that the annual Red Rock Fantasy at Los Abrigados has been cancelled, already “Jen” at the Chamber of Commerce together with a “core group of business leaders” are looking into alternative seasonal events to attract visitors.

    Any takers to bet if (1) the Lodging Council is among the core group; (2) although the city technically isn’t a “business” fat chance they won’t be high on the list for even more $$$$ to continue the lights?

    Hey, word is out. City Council Members are chumps for the chamber pleas at the cost of (another bet?) those on the sewer. With what chamber (and now Lodging Council are getting away with) if Los Abrigados with or without chamber support doesn’t stand in line to be “bailed out” it will be maybe a Christmas (oops, not allowed) Holiday miracle.

    This puzzle is so easy to figure out it isn’t even a challenge. Flushing has become a very expensive necessary evil, unlike the unnecessary demands being made by organized special interest groups.

    How can they say first increase in 14 years as if I remember Sedona hasn’t been incorporated for 14 years. Most people years ago were on septic tanks to begin with. When you set a rate to begin with that is an increase to me from zero to the implemented charge.

    FYI to Glenn:

    Sedona incorporated in 1988. Time flies when you’re having fun?
