City Manager and Public Works and Utilities Director talk rates, infrastructure

Public Works and Utilities Director Max Kirschbaum recently joined City Manager Don Tripp at Semper Water Treatment Facility to talk about the city’s draft 2021-22 water and sewer rate proposal and how the city is investing in safe, high-quality water and sewer services.

This proposal will be available for public review and comment through Monday, April 27.  Public comments will be documented and provided to City Council before they vote on 2021 and 2022 water and sewer rates in May.

The draft proposal includes several options, with the recommended option leading to an average monthly increase of $4 for drinking water services and $3 for sewer services for the average customer consuming 8,000 gallons of water a month in 2021 and by the same amount again in 2022. The recommended option provides the most consistent rate adjustments in future years.
