Increases in Utility Fees Scheduled to Begin in August
Part of the City’s mission is “To provide quality, affordable services for its citizens…” In fulfilling this mission, the City Council and staff work diligently to strike that balance between ‘quality’ and ‘affordability’. Tremendous resources are required to not only provide these services to you, but also to ensure they are reliable and of good quality. From time to time, additional resources may be needed. Without these resources, quality is likely to suffer, thereby providing you a sub-par service. We don’t want that, and we understand that you don’t want that. Therefore, you can expect to see a few changes in your monthly utility bill in August. Below is an explanation of these changes:
Culinary Water: an increase of $0.35 will go towards the Weber Basin Water pass-through costs for higher cost of water. Another $0.70 will go to hire a new full-time water maintenance worker.
Secondary Water: an increase of $0.20 will go towards rate increases from water irrigation companies. Another $0.70 will go to hire a new full-time water maintenance worker.
Park Maintenance: an increase of $0.50 will go towards increase in costs to maintain our parks and replace old park amenities.
Garbage Fund: an increase of $2.00 per black can for construction of new garbage facility.
Total Increase: $4.45 per user per month
