[ARCHIVED] Public Hearing Notice

The Vallejo Flood and Wastewater District (VFWD) Board of Trustees directed VFWD staff to prepare a report for Fiscal Year 2021-2022, which contains a description of each parcel of real property receiving VFWD services and the amount of the service charge for each parcel for the year. This report was prepared and filed with the VFWD Clerk of the Board. You are hereby notified that, on July 13, 2021 at 6:00 pm via Zoom, the Board will hold a public hearing to consider whether to adopt the report and elect to have such charges collected on the tax roll in the same manner, by the same persons, and at the same time as, together with and not separately from, general taxes. At the public hearing, the Board shall hear and consider all objections or protests to the report. If the Board finds that protest is made by the owners of a majority of separate parcels of property, then the report will not be adopted and the charges shall be collected separately from the tax roll. If you would like to participate in the public hearing, go to

  1. What is a public hearing? A public hearing is a scheduled time at which members of the agency's staff will meet to receive public comment on a regulatory action.
  1. What is the purpose of this public hearing notice? Vallejo Flood and Wastewater District currently collects the annual sewer and storm fees on the property tax roll. This public hearing allows property owners (customers) the opportunity to protest the way they receive their annual sewer and storm fee billing. Should customers want to receive their billing separate from the property tax roll, they may protest how the District collects its fees. The VFWD Board of Trustees will consider all objections and protests regarding how the user fees are collected. If more than fifty percent (50%) of the customers protest how the user fees are currently collected, the District will collect the annual fees separately from the property tax roll.
  1. How does it affect me? The notice includes the total amount of the annual service fees for each parcel to be collected on the 2021-2022 property tax roll.  In general, customers may consider using the information to plan for any applicable adjustments to their annual fee.  The District has collected annual service fees on the property tax roll since 2017; therefore, the billing method should not affect the customer differently from prior years. This billing method is widely used due to the fixed nature of the charges and the volume of customers. Generally, if wastewater agencies don't bill this way, it's because they are also providing drinking water which varies based on the volume used.

If you have questions or would like more information about this hearing or billing in general, please call 707.644.8976.
