We are pleased to report some news from our Desert Region. Yesterday afternoon the La Quinta City Council voted 5-0 to NOT impose a $3,238 (SFD) DIF increase. The increase had been approved back in October 2008 but not implemented. La Quinta will continue collecting its residential DIF at the current rate until January 1, 2011. The Council clearly felt that a fee increase in the current economic environment was not appropriate.
