February 11, 2019 – Continuing with the District’s commitment to provide ample irrigation water and high-quality drinking water for customers while keeping rates as low as possible, Nevada Irrigation District (NID) Directors will review of a Water Cost of Service (COS) study during their Feb. 13 meeting.
The COS study uses rate-making principles to develop rates that will generate sufficient revenue to meet the financial requirements of the District while establishing fair rates for customers. Read more about the COS study here.
The Board of Directors meeting will be held at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, February 13 at the District’s Board Room located at 1036 West Main Street, Grass Valley. The public is invited to attend.
Fun Fact: The Nevada Irrigation District General Manager makes an annual salary of $252,449.60. That is $21,037.47 a month!! So NID is asking people, some who make in a year what General Manager Scherzinger makes in a month, to accept a 100% rate increase for their water without a concerted effort to cut costs or even look at costs. They have a fancy document, done by a consultant that “shows” how expensive water can be to deliver. You can bet they did not showcase this extravagant salary, (more than the Governor of California). The real hoot in this drama is that NID is looking to Raise this salary on the backs of the customers. How much will they have to raise rates to pay for a billion dollar dam?
