City Council Roundup—Nov. 20 


Water issues were center stage once again at last night's city council meeting.

During the public work session, council made progress on the Sewer Extra Strength Charge Program—a rate program on hold until December that would charge non-residential customers more based on the strength and flow of their contributions to the sewer system.

The Extra Strength Charge Advisory Group presented multiple rate structure options aimed at making rates better reflect costs while remaining revenue neutral (aside from some increase to cover the cost of additional staff to roll out the new program). The proposed rate structures would impose a modest increase (about $2.50 a month) on commercial customers in the lowest use category, but larger business (such as breweries and bakeries) could see more significant increases under the proposed rate change.
