PUBLIC WORKS AND UTILITIES COMMITTEE
RESOLVED, that calculation of steam capacity charges as described in Public Document No. 06-0626-21 approved pursuant to Resolution No. 06-0351 is hereby amended by the rate calculation on file in the office of the city clerk as Public Document No. __________________, effective for steam provided to customers on and after January 1, 2009.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The purpose of this resolution is to modify the method of calculating the capacity charges upon which steam cost is based by going from a calendar year basis to a “heating season” basis with the period of July 1 through June 30 of the following year being used to establish the capacity charges being used in calculating steam costs for the next calendar year. Thus, the capacity charge for calendar year 2009 attributable to any consumer will be based on their consumption from July 1, 2007 through June 30, 2008.
This will allow the district administration to inform customers what they can expect their capacity charges to be for the following calendar year well in advance of their effective date so that the customers can include this information in the budgeting process for the next year.
