Utility rate increases go into effect with January billing

Planned increase needed to offset rising operational costs

To help offset the rising costs of providing and treating water as well as collection, transmission and treatment of wastewater, a planned rate increase will go into effect with the January 2016 billing.

Overall, residential customers on average will see about a 3 percent increase in their utility bill.

For most residential customers, the water volume charge will increase to $2.49 per 1,000 gallons and the minimum monthly service charge will increase to $14.69. The sewer volume charge will increase to $3.39 per 1,000 gallons and the minimum monthly service charge will increase to $13.27.

Larger meter sizes will see a comparable increase.

If we may assist you with questions or billing discrepancies, please call the Utility Billing office between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at 512-218-5460.
