A TUD Break Means Higher Water Rates

Tuolumne County, CA — The Tuolumne Utilities District Board will host a workshop Thursday to discuss rate increases.

Originally, TUD had asked for a $9.50 a month hike on rates, but after public outcry, this new proposal calls for a $2.76 jump.

TUD General Manager, Pete Kampa says they had to make $8 million dollars in cuts to bring the rates down. Those include not filling vacant jobs, lowering salaries and reducing funding for infrastructure projects.

A public workshop is scheduled for 1pm Thursday in the T.U.D. meeting room. The vote itself is scheduled for the regular board meeting on June 12 at 7pm.
