The Knox City Council will decide tonight whether to give its final approval to ordinances raising water and sewer rates. The proposed rates are based on a study conducted for the city by accounting firm Umbaugh and Associates. It took into account infrastructure needs for maintaining both services at appropriate levels.
According to a minimum bill comparison for total water and sewer rates, consumers can expect to see a nearly $13 increase in 2016. Prices would increase another $7 the year after.
Tonight’s meeting starts at 7:00 at City Hall.
