Proposed Water Rate Increase

Public Works Director Scott Jones and City Clerk Pam Dowdy explained to Council the research that had been done on how other cities handled water sales. Most cities charge by the size of the meter so that larger commercial services that have larger meters and higher water volumes would be charged at a rate compensable with the size of the meter and the volume of water used.

Scott also, pointed out to Council that the City needed to increase their rates because of the water loan/grant that was being applied for in order to upgrade its water system.

Libby Bond made a motion to adopt the water rate increases as proposed. Chris Mason seconded the motion. Mayor Walter Turner and Danny Perkins voted in favor. The motion passed.
