Base rates support the operations and maintenance expenditures necessary to continue to provide safe and reliable utility services. City Council unanimously approved changes to 2019 base rates at their meeting Nov. 13, 2018.
Most commercial and industrial (C&I) customers will experience changes to base rates for wastewater and water services. Customers in the variety of rate classes designed for business customers will experience differing changes, as their rates are adjusted to be better aligned with the proportionate cost to serve them.
