From The Fort Morgan Times (Dan Barker):
The monthly base charge for water will rise from $34.13 a month to $35.83 per month, and the volume charge will go from $2.52 per 1,000 gallons to $2.65 as of Jan. 1, said water resources Director Gary Dreessen. However, the wastewater rates will not rise, City Manager Pat Merrill said.
A water and wastewater study completed by The Engineering Company indicates that a rate adjustment is needed to balance the water department budget, he said. Like other departments, the water department has limited its capital projects this year to help balance the 2011 budget, Dreessen said.
