3% Rate Increase in 2020

Hide Featured Image

Much of Wildernest's water and sewer infrastructure was built 30 to 50 years ago and until now BMMD has been able to rely on our current infrastructure without making large capital investments. That time has now come to an end. Due to age and growth, the District must make the needed improvements and will continue infrastructure replacement projects now and throughout the next five years. These projects come at a cost which must be passed along to the owners of the system‚ all Wildernest property owners. Small annual increases will also cover rising operating, maintenance, fuel, and equipment costs.

2020, Rate Increase

The increase is outlined as follows:

  2019 Quarterly
Water/Sewer Rate
New 2020 Quarterly
Water/Sewer Rate
Wildernest $153.00 $4.00 $157.00
Cortina Ridge $229.00 $4.00 $233.00

The increase will be reflected on the first quarter (1/1/20-3/31/20) water/sewer bill which will be mailed out to property owners the first week of April 2020. For those customers that pay bills using bank checks, you will need to adjust the amount on your Automatic Bill Pay account to reflect the new quarterly rates as listed above. There are several options to pay your quarterly utility bill. You can mail a check, pay on-line with credit card or electronic check, sign up for Auto Withdraw, or drop a check at the office.
