Chatfield increases water and sewer rates


Fri, Nov 30th, 2012
Posted in Chatfield Government

At the November 26 Chatfield City Council meeting an amended list of Particular Fees, Fines and Charges under Ordinance 406 was unanimously adopted. Councilor Paul Novotny was absent.

All city fees, fines, and charges will remain constant with the following exceptions. The base monthly water rate fee will be raised to $9.18, a three percent increase. The per 1,000 gallons less than 2,000 charge will be raised to $3.17, a three percent increase. The sanitary sewer base monthly rate will increase to $38.10, a six percent increase. The per 1,000 gallons less than 2,000 charge will be $8.17, a six percent increase. The non-metered monthly fee will be $50.36, a one percent increase based on 3,500 gallons.

Ambulance transport (basic life support) will be increased by $50 to $650. Ambulance transport (advanced life support) will be increased $50 to $850. The cost of an EMT class will increase by $75 to $800. The cost of an EMT refresher class will increase by $25 to $275.

Hitching Post

Robert Vogel, Historic Preservation Planner, discussed what he called a piece of street furniture which in its day was considered an important piece of street furniture. The last hitching post in Chatfield, probably dating back to the early twentieth century was damaged in the spring of 2010 during sidewalk snow removal. He said it was not a significant historical piece, but of educational interest. He recommended it be replicated on a different corner, moving it north a block where it will not be near a fire hydrant, at the corner of Second Street and Twiford Street. He suggested a plaque or sign be added noting its history. Vogel believes it would cost less than $1,000 to replicate.

Councilor Ken Jacobson said replicating the hitching post should hinge on the power company helping to pay for it since it was their equipment that was responsible for the destruction of the original hitching post. The council approved the reconstruction of the hitching post contingent on the power company helping with the cost.

Other Business In Brief

•Approval was given to advertise for candidates to fill the position of Deputy Clerk/EMS Support.

•Mayor Don Hainlen presented Councilor Josh Thompson with a certificate of appreciation for his service since 2009. Thompson had chosen not to run for reelection.
