Fiscal Note
For the average residential customer of the Sewer Utility, the rate increase is projected at approximately 2.75%, which would result in an annual increase in charges of about $7.33.  Average residential customers of the Stormwater Utility can anticipate a rate increase of about 4.30%, or $3.56 more annually.  The average residential customer of the Landfill Remediation Fund should expect rates to decrease by $1.60 per year.  Overall, the average residential customer's semi-annual bill is projected to increase about 2.59% or $9.29.  
 
Revenues and expenses consistent with these charges have been built into the 2014 Operating Budgets of the Sewer Utility, the Stormwater Utility and the Landfill Remediation Fund, although some minor levy-neutral budget adjustments will need to be made.  No additional appropriation is required.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the 2014 Rate Schedules for the Sewer Utility, the Stormwater Utility and the Landfill Remediation Fund are hereby adopted; and
