Rutland water and sewer rates to rise

Print More

Rutland residents are in for a jump in water and sewer rates.

The city’s aldermen have voted to increase the rates by 15 percent.

But last night the board rejected a resolution recommending that water rates not rise more than 5 percent next year.

The rate increase is intended to pay for roughly $1 million of the city’s water and sewer expenses.

That means the bill for the average family of four using 2,400 cubic feet of water per quarter will likely rise by $21.26 a quarter to $162.72.
