This is a joint presentation to City Council and the UAC. Funding: N/A Recommendation: Informational only Background / Analysis: During the 2019 rate setting process the decision was made to adjust water rates for the residential customers only. This was designed to bring those rates more in line with the calculations made in the Water COSA model. The offer was made to present the COSA model to the City Council early in 2019 so that a greater understanding of the process could be achieved, leading to more informed and involved rate setting. This presentation will first, create an understanding of basic COSA and rate setting principles, and second, review the 2019 Water COSA model. Funding Overview: N/A pg 5
