F) Action to find that the proposed ordinance amending Title 12. Water, Sewerage and Drainage, Chapter 12.03, Sewer Connection Charges and Use Rates, Section 12.03.020, Schedule of Rates, by increasing all rates twelve (12%) percent effective April 1, 2008, and an additional twelve (12%) percent effective July 1, 2008, and other matters properly related thereto, does impose a direct and significant economic burden on a business or directly restrict the formation, operation or expansion of a business, that a business impact statement has been prepared, accepted and is on file with the Board of Supervisors and that the requirements of the NRS 237.080 and 237.090 have been met. 

Staff Summary: The sewer rates have not been increased since June 2003 which saw a 9.1% increase. Prior to that there was a 10% decrease in 1993, an 11% increase in 1991 and a 6% decrease in 1988. Staff did not bring a rate change last year as the components of the capital program were in flux given the issues with NDEP relating to Brunswick Reservoir.

On January 17, 2008, the Board was also informed that the city was about to go out for bids for the first phase of construction of wastewater treatment facility upgrades including an additional clarifier, reconstruction of the North Lift pumping facility, aerated treatment pond improvements, influent piping modifications, RAS pump improvements and headworks improvements. Total project costs were estimated at over $8 million. This project has now been put on hold. Due to the severe decline in connection fees this past year, staff is recommending a 12% increase as of April 1 and an additional 12% increase as of July 1, 2008. The 12% rate increase requested is principally for debt service (10%) and to cover increased operations and maintenance costs (2%) such as fuel, electricity, and chemicals. The following 12% increase is also for debt service (10%) and to cover increased operations and maintenance costs (2%) such as fuel, electricity, and chemicals. This increase will bring the Sewer Fund a little above the break even point for continued operations and debt service. Staff anticipates that an additional increase next year will be required to move forward with capital improvements to the Waste Water Reclamation Plant if the economy does not improve.

G) Action to introduce, on first reading, an ordinance amending Title 12, Water, Sewerage and Drainage, Chapter 12.03, Sewer Connection Charges and Use Rates, Section 12.03.020, Schedule of Rates, by increasing all rates twelve (12%) percent effective April 1, 2008 and an additional twelve (12%) percent effective July 1, 2008, and other matters properly related thereto. 

Staff Summary: The proposed increase of rates reflected in Chapter 12.03 provide for the necessary revenue requirements to operate, maintain and meet debt obligations. More specifically, the changes provide for an across the board 12% increase effective April 1, 2008 and an additional 12% effective July 1, 2008 to the monthly rates for each property and septic haulers.
