The City contracted with engineering firm HPR, Inc to complete a Water/Sewer Rate Study. The results will be presented at a PUBLIC HEARING on OCTOBER 21, 2015 at 7pm, City Council Chambers. Please attend this important meeting. The purpose of the rate study is to determine what the rates need to be and ensure rates are equitable to customers. The City has struggled in recent years with the need to increase rates to meet the needs for operations, system improvements and the current debt obligations, while understanding citizen concerns with rising costs. The rates paid for water/sewer services cover the expenses of operating the system, including the day to day operations, costs for maintaining the system through repairs when something fails, and upgrading the system to avoid failures. By law none of the revenue received from water/sewer rates can be allocated to other functions of the city such as police, streets, or library, but only spent on water/sewer related activities.
