BOMA San Francisco Supports San Francisco Water/Waste Water Rate Increases

BOMA San Francisco Members:

BOMA members recently met with staff from the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) to review the proposed four-year rate package for FY 2015-18 and our association's leadership is supportive of the water and waste water rates as presented by the Commission.

In the past, the City and County of San Francisco has underfunded the maintenance of the City’s infrastructure needs, and, until recently, our water/waste water system has been no exception. The four-year rate package addresses the fundamental upgrades in our water resource delivery and treatment systems that will allow for our local economy to continue its upward trajectory.

BOMA San Francisco members have appreciated the long-term partnership with the City and County of San Francisco and its many agencies and departments since its creation in 1911. Our members value the collaboration and partnerships that have been established over the past century, including our relationship with the SFPUC.

In sharing the upcoming SFPUC rate proposal with our members, none has voiced any opposition. Rather, they have stated that increasing the reliability of our water/waste water system is a priority and that the ratepayer process is the most efficacious means to do so.
