Fiscal Note

For the average residential customer of the Sewer Utility, the rate increase is projected at approximately 3.1%, which would result in an annual increase in charges of about $9.85.

 

Average residential customers of the Stormwater Utility can anticipate a rate increase of about 2.3%, or $2.15 more annually.

 

Average residential customers paying the Landfill Remediation Fee can anticipate a rate increase of about 62.5%, or about $3.00 more annually.

 

Overall, the average residential customer’s annual bill is projected to increase about 3.6% or $15.00.

 

Revenues and expenses consistent with these charges have been built into the 2018 Operating Budgets of the Sewer Utility, the Stormwater Utility and the Landfill Remediation Fund, although some levy-neutral budget adjustments will need to be made (detailed out in the attached pdf). No additional appropriation is required.

Title

Amending the 2018 Operating Budget and Setting the 2018 Rates for the Sewer, Stormwater and Landfill. 

Body

WHEREAS, the Sewer Utility, the Stormwater Utility and the Landfill Remediation Fund are entirely self sufficient and therefore require no property tax levy support; and

 

WHEREAS, consistent with the standards set forth in Wis. Stat. § 66.0821(4), the City Engineer sets utility rates each year; and

 

WHEREAS, now that the 2018 City Operating Budget has been adopted, the Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District rates for 2018 have been set and the operating results of 2017 are known, it is now possible for the associated rates to be formally adopted for 2018.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the 2018 Rate Schedules for the Sewer Utility, the Stormwater Utility and the Landfill Remediation Fund are hereby adopted; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the 2018 Operating Budgets of Sewer Utility, the Stormwater Utility and Landfill shall be amended to reflect these new rates; and

 

BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that these rates shall go into effect on bills generated after May 1, 2018.
