Title
An Ordinance to Amend Sections 2:61, 2:62, 2:63, 2:64 and 2:69 of Chapter 29 (Increase Water, Sewer, and Stormwater Rates) of Title II of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor - Water, Sewer and Stormwater Rate Adjustments due to Capital Improvement Requirements (Ordinance No. ORD-09-19)
Memorandum
Your approval is requested to amend Sections 2:61, 2:62, 2:63, 2:64 and 2:69 of Chapter 29 of Title II of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor to adjust water, sewer, and stormwater rates for capital improvement requirements in all three systems. The amendments will provide revenue increases of 3.6% in water, 3% in sewer and 1.6% in stormwater.

The recommended rate changes in water, sewer, and stormwater are projected to increase revenues by $663,821, $605,358, and $182,494 respectively. This additional revenue is needed to fund capital improvement requirements. The impact of these increases on the average single family customer is $3.56 per quarter or $14.11 per year, a net increase of 2.54% The typical single family uses 21 units per quarter, is in the second tier for stormwater and receives the 10% discount for payment on or before the due date.

Residential accounts where more than 4 dwelling units are served from the same meter are defined and are placed in the tier for either commercial 1 rate or commercial 2 rate based on the peaking factor for the account.

This ordinance is recommended to take effect ten (10) days after legal publication or on July 1, 2009, whichever is later.
