  • Nonessential spending in Pima County continues

    Nonessential spending in Pima County continues

    Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry has proposed another increase in your wastewater rates. The board hearing for this increase will be held in August. The request   includes a 3 percent rate increase per year for the next two years along with an increase for one time sewer connection fees.   Wastewater management reported   operations costs were much higher than originally estimated. Revenue projections were far more optimistic than what has actually occurred. Both population and job growth have been flat resulting in slower growth in wastewater revenues. This slow growth isn’t expected to change anytime soon. Pima County residents have already seen their wastewater bills skyrocket more than 300 percent in the past 10 years to pay for $700 million in wastewater debt.
