What can I expect in 2024 compared to previous years?

In 2024, water and sewer rates are increasing by 12% with an additional $4 and $2 service fee increase respectively. Stormwater rates will increase 5%. For the average single family home, this comes to an increase of around $130 per year, $22 per bi-monthly bill, or $11 per month. 

As a reminder, the City uses a tiered rate system. Tier 1 covers the first 30,000 gallons of use in a two month period. The higher tiers come with an increased rate. This means the more you use, the more you will pay. Learn more about tiers on the Rates and Fees page. Watch this video for more information on Understanding Your Utility Bill.
