Beginning on the July usage billing (August bill), the annual water, sewer, and trash rate increases will be implemented. The water rates have been increased by 2.6%, which is the amount Rend Lake Water Conservancy District rasied our supply rates for the year. The sewer base rate was increased from $5.00 per month to $9.00 per month to pay for additional experienced/licensed personnel needed to properly operate our aging sewer plant. The trash rates increased by 3%, which is the amount Republic raised our rates for the year. A breakdown of the rate incereases can be found in the link below.
