Rapid City Water Rate Set To Increase

Rapid City’s Legal and Finance Committee recently approved a second reading of an ordinance that would increase residents’ water rates and fees, reports KOTA Territory News. The ordinance’s next step is to come before the full city council for approval.

The water ordinance will get a final reading at the next city council meeting on August 20th. If approved, Rapid City’s water rate will increase gradually over the next five years, increasing from a monthly average of $30.72 to $46.66 by 2022. Public Works Director Dan Coon reported that water rates have not increased since January 2013, and that the increase is necessary to maintain treatment facilities and cover capital improvement costs. Rapid City’s Public Works committee approved the first reading of the ordinance in July.
