Port Angeles: Council continues hearing on water, sewer rates

Port Angeles residents will get another chance Nov. 19 to comment on a potential water rate increase. Sewer rates won’t be increasing, though.

The council Tuesday night held a public hearing to consider a proposed 11 percent increase from 2003 through 2005.

The increase would affect the basic charge and the consumption charge.

The city’s consultant said this option, one of three presented, would keep water rate increases down while still maintaining an above average water and sewer fund reserve.

This rate-increase option includes using $1.2 million in water and sewer fund reserves and $4.2 million in revenue bonds for capital projects.
