The Redway Community Services District sent out notices to the ratepayers, dated Sept. 26, 2013, informing them of a needed rate increase - justified by a 3-5% per year increase in operational costs. [See letter and charts on Page A3].
This is a written protest of the proposed rate increase, as required by the RCSD letter, because RCSD is imposing a 25% increase - nowhere close to the 3-5% they need.
The four base residential items they propose to raise will increase from $51.25 to $64 per month.
A 5% increase would only be $2.56, not the $12.75 they propose.
I believe that the letter sent to the RCSD ratepayers misrepresents the facts, and should not be allowed as part of the process.
