Water Rates

The Select Board opened a Rate Hearing on June 6, 2022 for the purposes of setting water rates for FY2023.  There was some discussion about the rates and a vote was scheduled for the next meeting on June 27th.  Click here for the information that was provided to the Board for the hearing.

The Board of Water Commissioners have set the FY2019 water rates.   The new rate schedule is available online and includes an 26.1% increase in the water rate.  The rates are based on the budget approved at Town Meeting in May 2018 and the water use forecast for FY2019.

The rate increase is due to increases in the Water Department's reserves which have been increased in anticipation of bond costs for the Water Treatment Plant Project and short-term borrowing for capital projects.
