SEWER RATE STUDY RESULTS

The Sewer Utility completed a review of its current rates in October of 2017. Rates for the Sewer Utility have not changed since 2008 in the City.  With increased costs of maintenance, operations and the larger projects being done each year to replace older infrastructure the Utility reviews its rates to determine if it is making ends meet for the day to day operations and debt payments of the Utility.  What the study found was that a 4% rate increase would be recommended for users of the system.

Sewer Utility Rates Effective 04-01-2018

Below is a cover letter which gives an overview of the recommendations coming from the City's audit firm and then the full rate study for further information on how the change was arrived at.  A chart of how the rates would change is also shown below under "Sewer Utility - Proposed 2018 Rates".  The Council has reviewed this with the audit firm who completed the study and will be taking this to the regular meeting of the Council on February 20th to consider action.
