The Kootenai-Ponderay Sewer District’s governing board will conduct a Public Hearing Monday, August 26, 2019 in the meeting room at 511 Whiskey Jack Road at 5:30 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 inline with current costs.  The current monthly user rates and proposed rates per equivalent residential unit ER are listed above.  All interested parties are invited to attend.  Written comments must be submitted to KPSD prior to the scheduled hearing by either mailing or delivering to the District office.  Additional information is available at the District, or by calling 208-265-5326.

**Accounts that had a past due amount as of August 1, 2019 were certified to the County Tax Rolls.  Please contact the District Office at 208-263-0229 if you have any questions regarding your account.  Thank you. 

A delinquent account is defined as an account that is 30 days or more past due. All delinquent accounts were certified to the Bonner County Tax Rolls on August 1, 2019, per Idaho Code. These uncollected fees directly impact the operational and maintenance costs of the District. If your account has been turned over to the County, you will see a credit memo on your statement. You will need to make your payment to the Bonner County Tax Collector. 

Although delinquent accounts are placed on your Bonner County tax statement, they are not a property tax.. They represent a charge for a service provided, but not paid for. 

A reminder that your current billing statement is due by September 30, 2019.  If you would like to receive your statement electronically, please send us an email.

THANK YOU.
