What is “Yes on Affordable Utilities”?

“Yes on Affordable Utilities” is a community-driven effort led by Mesa Councilman Jeremy Whittaker to reduce your City of Mesa utility rates, this includes your water, wastewater, sewer, trash, and electric. Today for every $100 you spend on these Mesa utilities $32 is skimmed off the top to balance the budget and pay for unrelated expenses like a subsidized private airport, golf course, professional sports complexes, and ASU campuses. This has led to uncontrollable water costs and utility rates in Mesa.

The solution to this problem is simple. “Yes on Affordable Utilities” will amend the Mesa City Charter to limit the transfers of unrelated utility expenses to 20% of utility revenues. This will not remove a single dollar from the Mesa budget. Rather, it will lower your utility bills and allow for reinvestments into the utility infrastructure that Mesa needs. Join us and let’s create a sustainable Mesa.
