South Gate Sewer Plan: A Look At the Big Picture
The City of South Gate has crafted a detailed plan focused on our community's sewer system. Think of this as a roadmap that guides how the city manages, operates, and takes care of our entire sewage network. At the heart of this plan is the goal to prevent unpleasant and potentially harmful sewage overflows and to ensure compliance with state regulations.
Why The City Might Adjust Our Rates
Maintaining a vast and intricate sewer system is no small task. It requires skilled staff, advanced equipment, and regular training. While the South Gate sewer plan is designed to prevent costly incidents in the future, there's an upfront cost to get everything in place. That's where a slight rate adjustment comes into play. It's a step the City of South Gate is considering to ensure there are the necessary funds to keep our sewer system top-notch and our community safe.
Your Voice Matters
Did you know there's a rule (Proposition 218) that ensures residents have a say in financial decisions like rate changes? It means if a majority of our community isn't in favor, the city can't go ahead with the adjustment.
