PFWD BOD is proposing a 7% increase on your base rate from $100 to $107 monthly, as well a 10% increase on tiered rates.  The necessity for the rate increase is primarily because of increases in electricy rates by Mountain View Electric and general increased costs across the board (operating expenses, operating maintenaces, and inflation.   We need to ensure we have enough cash reserves to be prepared for any emergencies.  We would rather be proactive, rather than reactive.  We hate to do this, but as you know, everything is going up, and that includes our costs to maintain PFWD.  

Additionally, the District is continuing to update the mainline infrastructure in this district.  We have been able to do this successfully without any bonded indebtedness.
