No fee increases for S. Davis Sewer District customers

Dec 5 2010 - 11:22pm

WEST BOUNTIFUL -- There will be no fee increases for customers in the South Davis Sewer District as part of the district's $11.38 million budget for 2011, approved Thursday night.

A budget without any increase in fees is not new for the district. Charlie Payne, chairman of the board of trustees for the district, said the district has raised fees only once in its 51-year history.

The district's fiscal year runs from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31.

Besides holding the line on fees for residents, the budget also shows a projected dip in spending and revenue from last year's $12.03 million budget.

However, there is still $6.9 million in the budget for capital expenses.

Payne said the district is buying a building in West Centerville from the Utah Department of Transportation, and the building will need some renovation.

Almost all of the capital expenses in the new budget are targeted toward construction costs, a budget outline shows.

The sewer district services the cities of North Salt Lake, Woods Cross, Bountiful, West Bountiful and Centerville.

The district currently has two plants and a network of approximately three million linear feet of sewer line throughout south Davis County.
