Prop 218 Notification and Budget Based Water Rates

On Tuesday, May 1, 2018, the Chino City Council authorized staff to initiate a proposition 218 notification with proposed water rate structure changes.The change is from traditional rate structures based on usage to a budget-based water allocation rate structure.

A budget-based water allocation rate structure is a customized approach that gives families and businesses an allocation of water based upon their unique indoor and outdoor water needs while encouraging conservation.

We encourage all water customers of the City of Chino to be aware, review the information and learn how this rate structure benefits you and our resources.

Speed Limit Traffic Survey Results

On Tuesday, June 19, the Chino City Council adopted a comprehensive speed zone resolution which will change or implement speed limits throughout the city.  These changes were the result of an Engineering and Traffic Survey, conducted by the Public Works and Police Department.  After evaluating the results, 54 street segments will be effected, with 21 of those street segments increasing, 9 decreasing and the remaining segments being newly created speed limits.

City staff is working diligently to replace and install the necessary speed limits signs throughout the City. We ask that all motorists drive safely and pay attention to all signs on the roadways, with special attention to the changed speed limits.  Any changed or newly installed speed limit signs will be temporarily flagged to bring additional attention to them.
