Increases to Water and Sewer Rates
In order to meet the regulatory requirements placed upon our wastewater treatment system and collection system, as well as ensuring we continue to meet water storage and distribution needs, there are several projects scheduled for completion over the next five (5) years. In order to meet the financial needs of these projects, annual fee increases over the next five (5) years will be significant, and will include an annual inflationary increase that should continue beyond the 5-year capital improvement plan.
