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.
