PUBLICATION NOTICE  CDS StoneRidge Utilities, LLC., NOTICE OF FILING APPLICATION FOR AUTHORIZATION TO SECURE DEBT FOR RECAPITALIZATON FOLLOWING SIGNIFICANT OPERATING LOSSES IN 2018-2023.   SWS-W-23-03 January 19, 2024 CDS StoneRidge Utilities, LLC, a Privately Owned Public Water Company in Blanchard, Idaho, filed an application with the Idaho Public Utilities Commission (“Commission”) on December 15, 2023, Case No.SWS-W-23-03, requesting that the Commission grant it permission to secure debt for the purpose of re-capitalizing the company following four plus years of significant operating losses from operations along with cumulative losses from “New Connections” where the cost of the new connections were significantly higher than the customer approved “New Connection Revenue” tariff rates. The proposed recapitalization is necessary so that the Company can continue to provide reliable water service to its current and future customers. This notice is solely for the purpose of obtaining the authorization from the Commission to obtain debt for the purpose of recapitalizing the company. The Company has previously been advanced approximately $800,000 as Intercompany Debt from “related entities” to cover operating losses between 2018-2023. It recently came to the Company’s attention, that issuance of related entity debt requires approval by Idaho Public Utilities Commission and the Company is consequently making this application retroactively. It is not anticipated that approval of this application will result in an immediate increase in the Company’s tariff schedule for Base Rates and Commodity Rates. However, the Company intends to make a “General Rate Tariff” application upon the Commission’s ruling on this application. This proposed “General Rate Tariff Application” will be the first one filed by the Company since 2006. In addition to general cost increases since 2006, the addition of IPUC approved debt will likely see a significant increase in the customer rates. Approval of the $800,000 debt level in this current application could result in up to as much as $48,000.00 in annual interest costs which would represent approximately an 11% increase in total expenses. Residential customers will, if the debt issuance is approved and is fully implemented in the likely anticipated forth-coming General Rate Case Application, see an increase in their monthly bill (currently $24.00) of $2.64 (11%) because of the approval of this Authorization to Secure Debt Recapitalization Application. The request for authorization to Secure Debt Recapitalization is subject to public review and a commission decision, which it may accept, modify, or reject in whole or in part. A copy of the Application is on file and available for inspection at the Idaho Public Utilities Commission, 11331 W. Chinden Blvd. Building 8, Suite 201-A, Boise, ID 83714. Phone: 208.334.0300 Idaho,  and the Company’s offices which are located at: 12 Holiday Loop, Blanchard, Idaho 83804.

PUBLICATION NOTICE CDS StoneRidge Utilities, LLC., NOTICE OF FILING APPLICATION TO INCREASE NEW CONNECTION HOOK-UP FEES FOR NEW WATER SYSTEM CUSTOMERS SWS-W-23-02 Date: January 19, 2024 CDS StoneRidge Utilities, LLC, a Privately Owned Public Water Company in Blanchard, Idaho, filed an application with the Idaho Public Utilities Commission (“Commission”) on November 21, 2023, Case No. SWS-W-23-02, requesting that the Commission grant it permission to increase its current IPUC approved hook-up fees for new water service connections. Since new ownership assumed management of the Company in November of 2018, “New Connection Costs” have significantly exceeded “New Connection Revenues” on the approximately 98 new connections completed over the last 5 years. After a thorough review of our costs, which included primarily 3rd party contractors, it was determined that an increase in the “New Connection Fees” are necessary if the Company is to continue to provide service to existing and future customers of the System. The requested increase in “New Connection Fees” will not impact existing customers, only new customers to the system. The following table shows the proposed increase in new connection fees by category:        Percentage   Category Current Tariff Proposed Tariff Increase $  Increase                                                                          Complete $3,500 $9,000 $5,500 157% Tap Main Install       $1,512        $5,000 $3,488 231% Adder Excav/Bore $1,800 $6,000 $4,200 233% Pit Setter/Meter Only $2,296 $5,500 $3,204 140% Install Meter only    $533 $2,000 $1,467 275% Totals $9,641      $27,500     $17,859             185% The proposed increase in “New Connection Fees” is necessary so that the Company can reduce the “Net Loss” it has been incurring on “New Connections” during the last five years.   The proposed increase in “New Connection Fees” is subject to public review and a commission decision, which it may accept, modify, or reject in whole or in part. A copy of the Application is on file and available for inspection at the Idaho Public Utilities Commission 11331 W. Chinden Blvd. Building 8, Suite 201-A, Boise, ID 83714. Phone: 208.334.0300 Idaho, and the Company’s offices located at: 12 Holiday Loop, Blanchard, Idaho 83804.
