Public Hearing on Continuation of the Water Availability Charge (WAC)


Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at 9:30 a.m.

 at the Montecito Water District Office, 583 San Ysidro Road, 93108



A key source of funds to pay for ongoing water distribution system upgrades is an annual assessment of $30 per acre (or per parcel less than an acre) within the District. The assessment is collected along with property taxes as a water availability charge (WAC), and is used exclusively to finance water system improvements. The assessment amount has not changed since it was initiated in 1996. No change in the assessment is proposed for the coming year. A written report with a description of each parcel of real property and the amount of the assessment for each parcel for the year is on file and available for review at the District office at 583 San Ysidro Road.
