City staff became aware late Friday afternoon (July 20, 2018), that mistakenly not all customers were provided with the Proposition 218 notices that were mailed out on July 13, 2018. In light of this, notices will be mailed out to those affected customers early next week. Therefore, the Public Hearing for the Proposition 218 protest process has been rescheduled to 6:00 p.m. on September 11, 2018, from the original noticed date of August 28, 2018. If you have already submitted a written protest to the City Clerk based on the previous notice regarding the surcharge rate increase, then you need do nothing further and your protest will be counted. If you have not yet submitted a written protest to the City Clerk and would like to, then you will now have until the end of the public hearing to be held on September 11, 2018, at Veterans’ Hall. The City has added additional open office hours for questions on the impact to individual bills and the Proposition 218 process on the following dates and times:
Thursday, July 26th: 12:00-5:00 p.m.
Tuesday, July 31st: 8:00-12:00 p.m.
Thursday, August 9th: 8:00-12:00 p.m.
Tuesday, August 14th: 12:00-5:00 p.m.
Office hours will be held at City Hall, 595 Harbor Street.
