In 2012 the District undertook a significant water infrastructure upgrade project that was intended to improve the reliability of the water distribution system and reduce water main leakage rates. In order to complete these upgrades, it was necessary to borrow 2.5 million dollars from the Colorado Water Resources Power Development Authority. The District was able to borrow $2,000,000 at 0% interest and $500,000 at 2% interest. Additionally, the District obtained a $300,000 grant and used cash reserves to complete this work. In order to comply with the loan covenants associated with these loans the Capital Fee was raised from $47.00 per month to $50.00 per month on May 1, 2017. All other rates and fees will remain the same.
Your annual property taxes include a mill levy of 5 mills for FVAWD. This money is used exclusively to cover administrative costs, such as accounting, audits, elections, and insurance.
