Council looking at a lower water delivery rate

By Tim Davidson Jan 10, 2024 | 10:45 AM

It’s going to cost more to get water delivery in the city, but not as much as was recommended.

City administration had suggested a 300 percent increase so the Sewer and Water utility wouldn’t be subsidizing the service as much.

But mayor Andrew Poirier calls the increase outrageous and has instead proposed a different increase.

That’s based on what water delivery would cost now, if the city had increased it every year from the last t would price hike in 2015.

That amounts to about a 40 percent increase this year, and a 3.1 percent increase in each of the next two years.

Council will vote on the changes at their open meeting next week.
