NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR CHANGE OF WATER RATES
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.
