Retirement costs boost Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District expenses

FAIRFIELD — Expenses increased $550,125 beyond a projected budget section for the Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District because of payments to the California Employers’ Retiree Benefit Trust for 61 employees, district General Manager Gregory Baatrup said.

A total of $1.6 million was budgeted while actual expenses are $2.1 million, Baatrup said in a report directors take up Monday.

Payments have reduced the unfunded liability for the Other Post Employment Benefit and with very strong interest earnings have eliminated the sewer district’s unfunded liability, Baatrup added.

The payments are a one-time cost, he said Friday.

Residential and commercial sewer services charge revenue is about $600,000 less than projected in the budget because revenue from building permits awaits the construction and occupation of units.

Miscellaneous revenue was about $500,000 more than predicted because of one-time discharges from sites such as Walmart and test water from Pacific Gas & Electric Co. pipeline testing.

Connection fee revenue rose in part because of projects that include the Suisun City Walmart, the general manager said.

Baatrup in his quarterly report said during the second quarter of 2014 district facilities treated about 1.2 billion gallons of sewage. About 9,256 tests were completed to show the plant complied with its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System requirements.

Directors meet at 6 p.m. at the district offices, 1010 Chadbourne Road in Fairfield. Director Jane Day will participate by teleconference from Suisun City.

    Prison time for those who negotiated contracts that rob the taxpayer as well as for those who seek to extortion rate retirements.

    But please lets keep sending them to seminars. Perhaps Fairfield should hire a consultant to figure this out.

    Sure, no one saw this coming, they were too worried about how it would look asking for more money. They knew this was coming years ago, how can a system work without planing for this, oh yeah I forgot , the system doesn't work
