Water and Sewer Rate Increase

Posted by jjones-lacy at Jan 02, 2014 08:20 AM |
Effective on the February 2014 billing, water and sewer rates will increase. The increase for an average customer using 3,000 gallons will be less than $5 per month.
Water and Sewer Rate Increase

3,000 gal water/sewer/trash comparison

Ordinance No. 1372 approved by Council in November set the rates for 2014 as follows:

Water:

  • First 1,000 gallons: $8.55
  • Each additional 1,000 gallons: $5.22

 

Sewer (residential customers):

  • First 1,000 gallons: $14.36
  • Each additional 1,000 gallons: $4.20 up to the sewer max rate.

 

You can find more information on how water and sewer rates are charged on our website under Utilities.

While the City of Tonganoxie's water and sewer rates are increasing, we still rank competitively with our neighbors. The chart above illustrates how much residents in nearby towns pay monthly for trash plus 3,000 gallons of water and sewer usage compared to Tonganoxie.

The increases will help the City in covering the costs associated with maintenance of the water and sewer plant, as well as improving public safety through enhanced emergency response staffing in fire and police.
