There will be a public hearing to consider a change in the water rates, charges and fees at the Rexford Community Hall, Rexford, Montana, on Nov. 8, 2016, at 6 p.m. The town proposes to increase the existing rates and fees as follows, effective Dec. 15, 2016.

Customers currently paying a base rate of $26 per month plus $1 per thousand gallons will pay new base rate of $30 per month plus $1 per thousand gallons. The School base rate of $62 per month plus $1 per thousand gallons shall remain unchanged. The idle service rate/change for any service that is connected to the water system but not using water, shall be $30 per month.

The Town also proposes to increase the emergency repair turn-off fee to $25. However, where service has been turned off for thirty (30) days or more and a turn on is requested, there will be a $50 turn on fee. All such fees shall be allocated 50/50 to the water utility and to the sewer utility. In addition, the Town proposes that the existing $100 hook-up fee or taping fee be increased to $150. If you would like assistance in determining how this will affect your individual monthly rates, please call 297-2439, and we can look at your usage history. Your monthly usage is printed on your bill. For further information regarding the proposed rate increase, please contact Town Clerk Sharlotte Brown at Town Office, 132 B Gateway, Rexford, Montana, or telephone 297-2439 during regular business hours.  MNAXLP
