For Immediate Release: April 23, 2009



Water, sewer rate changes proposed

Public invited to offer input, meetings



GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (April 23, 2009) – Goodyear residents who live south of Interstate 10 could soon see changes to their water and sewer rates.


The city is hosting two public meetings next month to discuss the proposed new water and sewer rates. Meetings will begin at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 5 and Thursday, May 7 in Room 117 of Goodyear City Hall, 190 N. Litchfield Road.


The proposed new water and sewer rates were developed by city staff and a consultant, with an emphasis on suggestions submitted by the citizen committee. After in-depth study, the committee recommended that a rate structure be developed that encourages conservation and provides revenue stability by recovering the city’s operating costs for water and sewer service.


The following committee suggestions were used by city staff and a consultant to develop the proposed rate structure:


·         Peak usage reduction and water conservation are the top priority

·         Growth  should pay for growth

·         Rate structure should consider revenue stability and cost to provide service

·         Customer impacts and acceptance should be considered

·         The City should consider equalized utility payments in the future


If approved, the new rate structure will be adopted in June 2009, but not go into effect until Jan. 4, 2010. Only Goodyear water and sewer customers, those who live south of I-10, will be affected by the rate change. Goodyear residents who live north of I-10 receive water and sewer service from Litchfield Park Service Company (LPSCO).
