2019 Water and Sewer Utility Rate Analysis Report

Posted by Dan Porter at Aug 14, 2019 02:52 PM |

The City's water and sewer utility rate study report reflects the results of a rate analysis completed in 2019 by Carl Brown, President of GettingGreatRates.com. The analysis was procured and prepared under the oversight of the Kansas Rural Water Association (KRWA) RATES Program, which offers an industry-standard, discounted approach to completing complex rate analysis in a fashion designed for smaller communities in Kansas.

The report was designed to provide the City Council with the information necessary to operate under a cost of service model, which is an approach designed to assign costs (service charges) to different utility users (customers) at the respective levels of service demanded by each user.

The report was completed in early May 2019, presented by Carl Brown to the City Council on May 20, 2019, and was used in the preparation of the 2020 annual budget.
