Water Rate Increase Information

Posted by on Aug 6, 2019 in Public Works | No Comments

Beginning in August 2019, rates for water and sewer will increase by 4.5%. This change will result in an increase of $1.47 per month on a minimum household utility bill, which is based on 2,000 gallons of water usage. There are several reasons behind the need for a rate increase, but the primary goals remain:

• the safe provision of drinking water AND collection of wastewater,
• meeting or exceeding the requirements of state issued permits, and
• keeping the Water and Sewer Enterprise Fund sustainable
