In this post, CivicMic provides a JBWD claim status update for refund claims received related to the Joshua Basin Water District Water Availability Standby Charge. As previously reported, a review of the District's Standby Charge found that approximately 200 property owners may be eligible for a refund in regards to Fiscal Years 2016/17, 2017/18, and 2018/19. Please click here to read our previous post about the findings and to obtain the audit report. The Board of Directors authorized the refunds utilizing a claim submittal process being coordinated by CivicMic. Several applications have been received. Below is a summary of the process:
- Claim applications will be reviewed by CivicMic staff for completeness and accuracy.
- Within a week, CivicMic staff will reach out to the applicant to confirm approval/denial or to request additional documentation.
- At the end of each week, CivicMic staff will send the District a list of newly approved refunds along with support documents and the amount to refund.
- Within two to four weeks of receiving the list, the District will review and mail checks accordingly.
