RTD Public Meeting @ Council Chambers
Feb 13 @ 6:00 pm

The City of Golden and representatives from the Regional Transportation District (RTD) will host a meeting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 13 in City Hall Council Chambers, 911 10th St., to facilitate discussion and input on a series of proposed RTD service adjustments that could occur in May 2019.

The proposed changes suggested for May 2019 include an additional cut to the Saturday service. If enacted, this service reduction would change the frequency of Saturday “daytime” rail service from every 15 minutes to every 30 minutes to match Saturday evening and Sunday all-day service. RTD staff estimates that this service reduction would save approximately $134,000 a year based upon the reduction from seven all-day trains to six. The recommendation is based upon Saturday ridership levels below RTD standards.

Golden City Council has identified concerns with the new proposal, as well as a continued concern that the W Line end-of-line station at the Jefferson County Administration Complex was placed into a “fare zone” that results in a dramatically increased fare ($5.25 vs $3.00) compared to the next station on the line at Red Rocks Community College.

RTD evaluates its overall service plan for buses and rail three times a year. This effort is intended to match the level of service provided within the district to available resources. Potential service enhancements or reductions are identified and presented to the public in a series of public meetings prior to board consideration and action. In the past, the City of Golden has requested adjustments to the RTD recommendations, most recently in August 2017 to request that RTD hold off on reducing the frequency of trains for non-peak (mid-day) hour rail service from 15 minute to 30 minute frequency. Based in part on our request, RTD did not reduce “mid-day” weekday or Saturday rail service frequency in those changes that went into effect in January 2018. Comments about the proposal can be provided to RTD representatives at the February 13th meeting, be sent directly to the RTD board, or at RTD public hearings to be scheduled in March.

Utility Rate Citizen Committee @ Public Works and Planning Building
Mar 19 @ 6:00 pm

The City of Golden Public Works Department is conducting a rate study for our water, sewer and stormwater (drainage) services in 2019. We are looking at how customers are charged for water, sewer and stormwater services, and the amount we charge for service.

The last rate study was completed more than 20 years ago and much has changed since that time, including water use habits, average demand and peak day needs, available technology and switching to monthly billing to name a few. Given these changes, the study will help us evaluate pricing objectives such as revenue stability, conservation and affordability to ensure we can support our high-quality water, sewer and stormwater services well into the future.

The Utility Rate Citizen Committee was formed to look into these issues and present a recommendation to City Council later this summer. The group first met on February 19 and will meet on the third Tuesday of the month through July at 6 p.m. in the Public Works / Planning Building, 1445 10th Street.
