Washoe County commissioners have approved a rate increase for county water customers.
Beginning in mid-March, the rate will increase an average
14-point-five percent, followed by a 5 percent increase in each of
the next two years.
Officials say the initial hike will raise about 1 (m) million
dollars a year to help fund a backlog of maintenance projects and
pay for rising operating costs.
The utility serves about 20-thousand customers.
About 92 percent of those who have water meters will see their
average monthly bill increase by 14-point-five percent to around 33
The remaining customers on flat rates will see a 17 percent jump
in their monthly bill, to about 79 dollars.
