Utility Rate Increases

Five Guiding Principles for Utility Rate Increases

Transparency and Responsibility

●          We will not transfer enterprise (utility) funds to balance the general fund budget.  Our budget is not balanced if we’re relying on one fund to subsidize another.
●          For the same reason, this is not a substitute for a tax increase.
●          We will make responsible cuts before asking residents to pay more for utilities or other essential city services.
●          We are prepared to make hard decisions if those decisions are right.
●          The process we follow will be open and transparent.  We will go above and beyond what is legally required and give residents several ways to ask questions and give input.
