Council approves utility rate increases

 

To compensate for increased water, garbage and sewer costs imposed on the city, the City Council raised utility rates Tuesday.

Single-family homes will see an average increase of $1.15 for garbage service and $1.15 for sewer service per month. Water services for a household that uses 250 gallons per day would have its water bill increase from $31.18 to $32.74.

The council vote for the increases was unanimous and came with little debate. City staffers said nine protest letters had been filed in opposition to the rate increases.

This is outrageous. The City government has given these companies a blank check that the taxpayers have to make good.
