Availability of Service StatementsWhat is an "AOS" Fee? Availability of Service or "AOS" fees are charged on unimproved property if the property has infrastructure for water and sewer service within 100 feet of the property.
Beginning January 1 2015, the District will charge the annual AOS fee in the amount of $150 per year, per lot. The fees will be due semi-annually with the first payment being due on March 1 and the second payment being due on September 1. You can of course pay the full amount of $150 by March 1.
The second half of the annual billing for the Availability of Service (“AOS”) fees has gone out to all vacant land owners that have availability of service. The fees are charged semi-annually with the first payment being due on March 1, 2015 and the second payment being due on September 1, 2015. The semi-annual due dates were put in place to allow customers the flexibility to pay the annual amount in two installments.
The District has 65 miles of distribution system and 45 miles of collection system lines designed to provide 2360 lots water and sewer service. Regardless of each lot owner’s decision to connect to the system, the capital infrastructure provides a benefit through its availability to the lot and lot values are enhanced as a result of this availability.
The AOS fee is specifically used to repay debt incurred for capital infrastructure which has been financed by the District. Although customers paying the AOS fee are not connected to the capital infrastructure, the cost of the capital infrastructure must be appropriately distributed among those who are connected and receiving service, and those who are receiving the benefit of the availability to receive water and sewer service.
