Office/Shop Plans Submitted to El Paso County
The process of seeking approvals from El Paso County has begun with submitting the site plan to El Paso County Development Services.  The District will build a combined District Office and shop facility on its property at Towner Avenue and Londonderry Drive.  The District Office will include offices for District staff, a reception area, and a meeting room that will hold up to 40 people.  The planned shop facility will have five bays and a work room for the District Operations Team.

2016 Budget Approved by Board

Board Approves New Fees, Increases
Authorized Rate Study for Other Rates
The Board of Directors approved a new lighting fee for the Scenic View at Paint Brush Hills development at Towner Avenue and Stapleton Road.  This development will have street lights which will be maintained by Mountain View Electric Association (MVEA)  and MVEA will bill the District for its costs.  The District will pass its cost to the Scenic View property owners in the form of a Street Lighting Fee.  The Late Fee on past due accounts was also increased from $10 to $15.  Both changes are effective January 1, 2016.

Mountain View Electric Association (MVEA). imposed an average rate increase of 6.5% on the District in June.  The District absorbed the rate increase without raising rates at that time.  The District was recently informed of a pending electric power rate increase of an additional 6.5% beginning with its February 2016 usage.  The Board engaged its engineer, RG & Associates, to conduct a rate study to assist the Board with setting rates.
