Posted By: Chip Ahlswede Community, Industry, Legislative Affairs, Advocacy Updates,

The city of Santa Ana has sent out a notice to property owners about a public hearing to discuss the increase in their Sanitation Fees. That Public Hearing will be:

February 20, 2024
5:30 PM
Santa Ana City Council Chambers
22 Civic Center Plaza
Santa Ana CA 92701

The rates are currently $5.35 per user per month.

The proposal is to increase these rates to - 

FY 2024 - 2025

Fiscal Year Rate

Increase Percentage
(Annual / Compounded)

2024-2025 $11.72 119%
2025-2026 $12.13 3.5% / 127%
2026-2027 $12.56 3.5% / 135%
2027-2028 $13.00 3.5% / 143%
2028-2029 $13.45 3.5% / 151%

This of course comes at a time where the city is limiting rent increases to a maximum of 3% (or 80% of CPI whichever is lesser)

If you feel this is something that would negatively impact your properties, the city is requesting protests to be sent in to the city in writing either to -
