Water and sewer rate changes in Creswell has been a hot topic lately, as city council has been mulling over a recommendation on whether to switch to a tiered water rate system as recommended by the Water Rate Advisory Committee (WRAC) for the 2018-19 fiscal year.
The recommended rates, if adopted, are to be effective beginning July 1.
The new design would reduce the monthly base rate for a three-quarter-inch meter by $1.65 and would add a rate for industrial users of $2.09 per hundred . . .
