The City of Oxnard is proposing very large increases for the utility services they provide. If the city council approves it, for a typical single family household in Oxnard:
- Water rates will increase by 66% over the next four years
- Wastewater rates will increase by 88%
- Garbage collection rates (solid waste) will increase by 23%
- It will cost about $750 extra each year for these utilities combined
And that’s not all. The city is also proposing automatic annual increases without a requirement that they give you future opportunities to protest those future increases.Read more
