The rate increase will take effect January 1, 2019.
SECTION 15- 1508 ANNUAL RATE ADJUSTMENT. On November 17, 1994, the District Board approved a motion to increase rates effective January 1 of each year in an amount equal to (or approximately equal to) the Denver-Boulder Consumer Price Index (D-B CPI). Should the D-B CPI not be available, the National Consumer Price Index will prevail.
