The Kootenai-Ponderay Sewer District’s governing board will conduct a public hearing on Monday, August 29th, 2022, in the meeting room at 511 Whiskey Jack Road at 5:00 p.m. in conjunction with the annual Budget Hearing for the purpose of hearing public comments regarding proposed increases for monthly sewer charges and other fees. The reasons for these actions are that increased operating revenue is needed to meet operating and maintenance costs of the system, to fund the ongoing depreciation of the system, and to bring other fees more reasonably in-line with current costs. The current monthly user rates and proposed rates per equivalent residential unit (ER) are:

Current Monthly RateProposed Monthly Rate
Single Family Residence$51.78$53.33

Commercial User per ER$69.48$71.56
Industrial User per ER$88.52$91.18
