Water rates increase approved by all three Lake County Commissioners at the last meeting.

An ~5% percent increase on quarterly bills will begin in three months.  This covers both the water supply and the wastewater treatment.

Residential customers will see an increase in their flat rate from $77.49 per quarter to $81.27  (an increase of $3.78 per quarter or 4.9%)

Nonresidential customers will see an increase of $3.69 to $3.87 per 1,000 gallons. (an increase of $$.18 per gallon or 4.9%)

LFC expects to see more sewer rate increases in the future to cover the needs to replace aging pipes in the ground.

We were questioned on the water rate increase, so we have posted the actual resolutions passed by the Lake County Commissioners.  We appreciate everyone’s comments.

  1. 824340 504321Hey there, I think your blog may possibly be having browser compatibility issues. When I appear at your web site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb weblog! 83881

  2. I always have a concern about any any service provided by a government entity or entity closely governed by a government entity. While in the private sector efficiency is diligently sought after, in the public sector it is not given the same priority (and sometimes given no priority at all). Perhaps the water/sewer public utility is very efficiently operated…but I would have to skeptical until it is proven otherwise.

  3. We have confirmed that the water rates are also increasing. We will include copies of the resolutions received from the Commissioners’ office.

  4. Thank you for your comment. I will check it out.

  5. This is not water rates. It’s sanitary sewer rates managed by Dept of Utilities. Very different.
