Moke Hill Sanitary District Public Hearing

Mokelumne Hill Sanitary District (MHSD) will hold a public hearing on July 27th, 6:30 p.m. at the Moke Hill Town Hall. The Public Hearing on the Repeal of Ordinance 2021-01, Adoption of Resolution 2023-01 Regarding Collection of Sewer Service Charge Through the County Tax Roll and Adoption of Written Report Containing Parcel Descriptions and Fees Charged to Each Parcel.

Mokelumne Hill Sanitary District (MHSD) board of directors will be conducting a Public Hearing on changing the procedure for collecting sewer fees from billing monthly to annual billing through the county tax roll.  Collecting sewer fees in this manner is extremely efficient and economical compared to direct mailing and individual collection.  There are also significant savings that result from not having to prepare and mail statements, process receipts, track payments, and handle late and delinquent accounts.  This procedure would take the place of the District’s current direct monthly billing for regular fees and would take the place of the District’s current procedure for collecting delinquent charges through the tax roll. The report can be viewed online at  Click on MH Sanitary (upper right-hand corner of the page).  The report can also be requested by contacting the board secretary at:
