Good and bad news coming in your utility bill if you live in the city. The cost of water and treating sewage will be higher, but the price of natural gas is going down. City Council takes up the recommendations on May 19th. The proposed monthly changes for the single family residential customer using 460 cubic feet or 3441 gallons monthly for water and sewer and 5344 cubic feet of gas will see a monthly increase of 4.89% from the current charge of $125.98 per month to $132.14 per month, or a $6.16 change from last year. Water is proposed to increase by $2.84 per month to $27.12. Sewer will increase $3.34 per month to $32.18 and gas will decrease from $72.86 by $.02 to $72.84 for the average size family residential user.
