Join the Discussion: Rio Vista City Council Sets Date for Storm Drain Fee Public Hearing for June 4th and Community Meetings on May 30th

The City of Rio Vista is taking significant steps to upgrade its stormwater management system by adopting Resolution No. 2024-029, which sets a Public Hearing. This development marks a proactive approach to addressing State requirements and the city's increasing flooding risks through enhanced maintenance of infrastructure. Notably, the storm drain fee has not increased since 1989.

The resolution follows comprehensive evaluations by the Municipal Rates and Utilities Committee (MRUC), which includes both city council members and engaged residents. Their thorough review ensures that the new storm drain service fees are both fair and compliant with Proposition 218.

In preparation for the public hearing, the city will host a community meeting on May 30, 2024. There will be two community meetings at 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm and 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm at the American Legion Hall on Saint Francis Way. Both meetings will have the same content. The community meetings will be a drop in format allowing property owners to come anytime during the meeting and have their individual questions answered.

This meeting aims to foster a deeper understanding of the proposed changes and encourage active participation.

Community Meeting: Thursday, May 30, 2024

Location: American Legion Hall on Saint Francis Way

There will be two meeting times, 3pm and 6pm. Both meetings will have the same content.

The public hearing, scheduled for June 4, 2024, offers a formal platform for property owners to voice their opinions. If the proposal passes without a majority written protest, final approval will be sought through a mailed ballot election on July 19, 2024.

Residents can also visit www.riovistarates.com for detailed information about the fee structures. A parcel fee map is also provided, as a tool, to help property owners understand how the proposed rates might affect them specifically, promoting transparency.

As Rio Vista prepares to strengthen its defenses against flooding through proactive stormwater management, these initiatives highlight the city's commitment to transparent governance and community safety. Residents are encouraged to participate in the upcoming community meeting and public hearing, contributing to a well-informed and equitable decision-making process.
