Drought is Here - A mandatory 20% reduction in water use is currently in effect for City of Sonoma Water Customers.

What do I have to do to protest the water rate increase?

  • Written protests can be mailed to the City Clerk or delivered in person. If you would like to protest these proposed water rates, you need to send a signed, written (not emailed) protest to the office of the City Clerk of the City of Sonoma by 6 pm on Mon- day, August 20, 2018. You may also attend the public hearing and submit a written protest to the City Clerk before the close of the Public Hearing on Monday, August 20, 2018.
  • You must include your printed or typed name, the service ad- dress (or Assessor’s Parcel Number) for your account, and your signature. If this information is not clear and complete, your protest may not be counted.
  • You must state your opposition to the proposed fee.
  • One protest per parcel or account, by either an account holder or a property owner, will be sufficient to make an objection for that parcel. A majority protest requires written protests for a majority of the properties the City serves, measured by customer accounts.
