Water/Sewer Rates may go up 70%
Thursday, December 4, there will be a special Strategic Planning Committee (full council) meeting to discuss the likelihood of raising utility rates in order to complete permanent improvements to the sanitary sewer and combined stormwater/sanitary sewer systems for the purpose of complying with state and federal EPA requirements. According to our current plan, this may require $76 million in improvements over the next 20 years, resulting in an increase of approximately 70% to the current rates. The meeting will start at 6:30 p.m. in the Third Floor Conference Room at City Hall.
