At Monday’s meeting, Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD)’s General Manager, Ben Horenstein, will present to the City Council regarding their rate increase proposal. Mr. Horenstein will explain the contents of the proposal and provide figures detailing the impact to the City of San Rafael and San Rafael residents. There are two main components of the proposal: (1) an increase to the water use and fixed charges averaging a 4-percent annual revenue increase, to keep pace with inflation and fund MMWD’s ongoing operations and maintenance; and (2) a new Capital Maintenance Fee (CMF) to fund investments in water system projects for clean, reliable water and to support projects to reduce wildfire risk on Mt. Tam. Iit may also be used to fund debt service on existing and future capital projects. Additional details of the rate increase and fee proposal is available on their website.
