| Zone-of-Benefit invalidated |
Mariposa Superior Court has judged the process converting the Yosemite West Maintenance District to a Zone-of-Benefit was invalid because of problems in the counting of the protests in Feb 2018. So, the Water+Sewer rate increases that started 3/1/2018 are invalid, and will be rescinded starting 7/1/2020. It will take time for the refund plan to be finalized.
