Residents may have noticed that water bills were a little lower than usual starting the month of May, as a water rate decrease approved by city council at its March 15, 2022, meeting has now gone into effect.
The rate reduction is now saving the average residential customer $6 a month, and the average commercial customer $43 a month. The average monthly water bill is $28 for residential customers, and $130 for commercial users.
Along with the rate decrease, city council also eliminated duplex water rate classification, removed winter and summer rate differences.
