Rapid City Council Makes Progress on Water Rate Hike

The first reading of an increase for Rapid City’s water rates was approved by the city council, reports KOTA News. The ordinance will increase water rates by 43 percent over the next five years. Additional funds generated by the tax increase would be directed toward the city’s reserve fund in the event that upgrades or expansions to the city’s water system are needed.
