Rates

City Council recently approved a water rate realignment that adjusted rates depending on the user and usage. These adjustments are effective July 1, 2018 and are revenue neutral, meaning the city is not collecting any additional revenue with these changes. The purpose of the adjustments is to better align what people pay based on their usage. As part of the analysis the city looked at commercial, single-, and multi-family residential units. Users in the city who use less water will likely see their water rates reduce overall, while those who use more water may see an increase in rates.
