City water, sewer rates to increase in February

(Sheridan, Wyo.) — The Sheridan City Council unanimously approved water and sewer utility rate increases Monday . The increases of 1.25 percent annually for water and 3 percent annually for sewer for four years, projected over an 8-year financial planning horizon, will allow the water and sewer enterprises to continue to be effectively operated and maintained, while working to meet reserve targets of $1.85 million and $1.26 million, respectively, by the end of FY 2017, according to the city. The water and sewer rates will increase the average customer’s bill by $.95/month ($0.40 for water and $0.55 for sewer) and will be effective Feb. 1, 2016. *Feature photo: City crews perform annual maintenance on city sewer lines near Sheridan Junior High School last fall. / Pitchengine Commuities* #dally #news
