(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.
