City of Chamberlain water/wastewater rates to increase

The second reading for the revision of Section 2 of Ordinance 517Iwater/ wastewater, which increases the monthly rate charged to residents and commercial businesses, was approved at the Monday night Chamberlain City Commission meeting. Beginning in 2019, a onetime $2 increase for each fund will be added to the monthly charge, in addition to the inflationary three percent increase that is implemented each year. City Engineer Greg Powell explained, “This three percent increase has been in place since 2003, and we were pretty close at guessing the three percent would catch it, but we slid back just a little bit.”

Mayor Mutziger also noted this increase would help with the new water replacement meter project coming up.
