Water Rate Notice



 

The following table summarizes the necessary rate increase for all customer bills starting in February 2017. This increase is necessary due to increases in operating costs and needed capital improvements to the water system that cannot be supported by the current rates.

Please understand that the Authority Board exercised its best business judgment in keeping the increase to a minimum while meeting its obligations under the Municipal Authorities Act.

We appreciate your patience, your confidence and your support and know that you understand the necessity for our action.
