Agenda Item Summary:
This ordinance will repeal the Rebate Program for Appliance and Fixture Installation. The program began in 2009, and it incentivized the installation of water-conserving appliances and fixtures. It offered a payment to water customers who replaced washing machines with high efficiency washers, and it also gave a rebate for toilet replacement with 1.6 gallon-per-flush toilets. The funds appropriated for this program have run out. Further, interest in the program has significantly decreased since its inception.
