TID Public Hearings for Water and Electrical Rates

Directors presented with proposed five year capital expenditure plan
TURLOCK – TID Board of Directors approved a resolution establishing a public hearing on December 9, 2008 at 1:30 p.m. to receive public comments and answer questions regarding a proposal to increase the rates charged for irrigation water.
TID is proposing to increase its Water Charge by $3.00 per acre on January 1, 2009 and again on January 1, 2010. In addition, it proposes to increase the charge for both tier two and tier three water by $5.00 per acre-foot on January 1, 2009. The proposed increase would raise the Water Charge from $20.00 per acre to $23.00 on January 1, 2009 and to $26.00 per acre on January 1, 2010. When available, water above the allotment would be provided at the cost of $15.00 for the first acre-foot and $20.00 per acre-foot for any water thereafter.
The rates charged for irrigation water have remained unchanged for the past four years during which time operating and maintenance costs have increased. The proposed irrigation water rate increase will help to offset a portion of the increased cost associated with the delivery of irrigation water, maintenance of the canal system, and regulatory requirements.
A survey of the rates charged by neighboring irrigation districts show that TID’s current Water Charge of $20.00 per acre is among the lowest for the amount of water received. Even with the proposed increases, TID’s rates will remain comparable to, and in most cases lower than, other local agencies providing a similar service.
On the electric side, the TID Board is continuing a series of financial workshops and will hold a public hearing on November 25, 2008 at 9:00 a.m. to receive public comments on proposed rate revisions to the District’s electric rate schedules.
Yesterday, the TID Board of Directors was presented with the proposed five year capital expenditure plan. Besides capital costs, which include projects to improve the irrigation and electric system, other financial impacts to the District include rising natural gas and wholesale electric prices, below average generation from hydro power plants and meeting state mandates for energy efficiency and renewable energy.
Another workshop is scheduled next week to review current rates as well as possible 2009 rate increases for the District’s 24 electric rate schedules.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
