Citizen Water Rate Working Group

Citizen Water Rate Working Group

The City of Vallejo has recruited volunteers interested in participating in water rate advisory group sessions to work with City staff to assist the City Council Ad Hoc Water Rate Committee on topics associated with Vallejo’s water systems and future water rate modifications.

Members of the working group will be committed to a length of service through November 2018, and be required to attend scheduled meetings and tours to help educate themselves regarding Vallejo’s drinking water system, and:

  • Review and comment on proposals regarding water rate changes
  • Provide input regarding future water rate structures
  • Encourage community understanding and participation in the water rate setting process

The Vallejo City Council Ad Hoc Water Rate Committee has reviewed all working group applications and a diverse group of 8 – 10 citizens representing interests from throughout Vallejo’s water service areas will be invited to participate as water rate working group members. Preference for seats on the committee will be given to candidates who possess expertise or have demonstrated leadership in one or more of the following areas:  1) Accounting or Budgeting, 2) Construction Management or Engineering, 3) Finance, 4) Water Industry, (including but not limited to: sewage collection and treatment, solid waste collection and disposal, recycling, storm water collection and conveyance, water quality, or water supply and distribution.)
