CURRENT FEES 

The Board of Directors adopted a User Fee rate increase effective January 1, 2022.  This User Fee increase includes the inflation factor of 1.951% per the Denver-Aurora-Lakewood CPI to be applied to both the flat rate and the fixture rate.  Additionally, after the inflation rate has been applied, a $5.59 increase shall be applied to the flat rate bringing it up to $291.72 and the fixture rate increased by $0.43 to $22.01 per fixture.

With regard to the delinquent fee presently charged by the district, the current $25.00 flat rate delinquent fee is minimal and is not discouraging late payment penalties.  Colorado State Statute allows up to 5% a month late fee on the principal up to a maximum of 25% of the initial billed amount.  Applying the maximum allowable amount of 5% per month will reduce the initial late fee cost for those less than 30 days late but will increase the late fees on accounts delinquent more than 30 days.  At the November board meeting, the Board of Directors, by unanimous vote, changed the method of delinquent fee assessment to A late fee of 5% of the assessment shall be charged on the unpaid balance, non-compoundable for five consecutive months, or part thereof, to any account whose assessment is not paid in full by March 31, or until paid in full, whichever is the earlier. 

Please note that the Emergency Fund Pool has been suspended for the 2022 year as we have reached our maximum fund amount. A $50 fee will be applied to your bill when it is reinstated. 

PUBLIC HEARING: 2023 USER FEE RATE INCREASE

A public hearing will be conducted at the Monday, October 17th board meeting to receive public comment on a proposed increase in annual user fees paid effective January 01, 2023.  The annual flat rate is proposed to increase $14.58 from $291.72 to $306.30, and the fixture rate is proposed to increase $1.10 from $22.01 to $23.11 per fixture. The District must continue to proactively maintain, repair and replace the aging infrastructure.
