Proposed Utility Rate Changes - What You Need to Know.
The Board of Trustees initiated a comprehensive study in early 2022 to align the utility rate and fee structure with feedback received about the priorities and values of our community.
A utility rate structure impacts how base rates, usage rates, or tiers recover the cost of service. Proposed rate structure changes are scheduled for the Tuesday, Nov. 8 Board of Trustees Regular Meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Leeper Center (3800 Wilson Ave).
Public comment may be given in person during the meeting or submitted in writing before 4 p.m. on the day of the meeting. 
If adopted as proposed, the new rate structure would go into effect in January 2023.
- Residential Proposed Base Rates (includes first 3K gallons of usage)
3/4 inch: $49.71 (most common) 
1 inch: $60.91
1.5 inch: $87.22
2 inch: $120.61
- Residential Proposed Tier Rates
3,001-7,000: $11.70
7,000-20,000: $15.20
Over 20,000: $21.64
