Wastewater Rates – Signatures Due by October 5, 2023 at 3:00pm MST
PORA members, Sun City West residents & Corte Bella Residents! Your assistance is needed immediately in assisting PORA in resisting a substantial wastewater rate increase in a case brought by EPCOR, and to be determined by the Arizona Corporation Commission. Commencing Tuesday, 26 September 2023, I ask you to stop by PORA to sign a petition, email your response or click the link below and enter your information which will be submitted to the Commission. It argues the following:
- Sun City West residents are retired and live on fixed incomes.
- Sun City West residents do not live in the immediate geographical locus of development that drives EPCOR’s wish for a wastewater rate increase.
- Sun City West argues that a three-tier system of rates are fair, equitable, and place the preponderance of the rates on the prime COST CAUSERS, to wit: Commercial and Industrial enterprises, rather than Residential.
The three-tier system would be assessed as follows; Commercial, Industrial, and Residential, in that descending order.
