Montara Water and Sanitary District recently sent a Notice of Public Hearing on Proposed Sewer Rate Increases to Moss Beach and Montara property owners. The proposed increases come just 2 years after a 47% increase occurred, and are 30% higher than today's rates and a whopping 90% more than the 2017 rate! The added annual reliability charge of $558.66 is yet an additional surprise. While we agree that infrastructure repairs and upgrades to our aging sewer system are needed, we do not think the timing for these increases is appropriate given the current financial crisis due to the COVID - 19 pandemic. We are asking key questions to MWSD - read our letter.
