Ordinance Amending Chapter 92 – Water Rates

AMENDING CITY CODE CHAPTER 92, Section 92.02:

Gallons used per Month       Rate
First 1,000    $20.00
All over 1,000    $2.55 per 1,000 gallons

WHEREAS in order to maintain the integrity of the system and pay the costs associated with maintenance, expansion, and debt service a rate increase is required to adequately fund the proprietary account.  And
