STPUD raises rates with little feedback

In finalizing its fiscal year 1999/2000 budget last week, the South Tahoe Public Utility District Board of Directors agreed to raise both its sewer and water rates by 3.5 percent.

The increases met with little opposition. During the public-comment periods of planning the budget, only five people objected to aspects of the increases.

The sewer rate increase will not be across the board. They vary for different rate classifications: single- and multi-family residences, 3.5 percent; commercial and restaurant, 5 percent; hotel and motel, 2.5 percent; and mobile home park, 2.2 percent.

The increases will go into effect in July.
