Mariposa County Public Works Rate-Study
On 7/16/2015, the Public Works department commissioned a Rate-Study for Mariposa County special districts including the water, sewer, and roads within the Yosemite West Maintenance District (YWMD). The Rate-Study will make recommendations to adjust utility rates to be consistent with a 5-year outlook of the service and maintenance costs needed by the YWMD. Any coming proposed rate changes will need to go through a Prop 218 approval ballot process by laws applicable to the YWMD special district. The county stated at the YWMD advisory committee meeting on 6/8/2017 that the proposals are still being iterated to be more reasonable before being ready to present publicly. When information and a proposal are available, YWPHI will facilitate communication to all community owners.
