A public hearing was held for Ordinance #114 – ORDINANCE AMENDING THE CODE OF ORDINANCES OF THE CITY OF NEW VIRGINIA, IOWA BY AMENDING PROVISIONS PERTAINING TO WATER RATES
After re-estimating the current 2021-22 city budget and figuring the next fiscal year budget (2022-23), it has been determined a rate increase will have to be implemented to offset the increasing cost for the purchase of water from Warren Water and increasing costs for maintaining the water distribution system.. The current rate for the first 2,000 gallons or less per month is $22.65 (minimum). All usage over 2,000 gallons per month is $8.90 per 1,000 gallons. The new rate for the first 2,000 gallons or less per month is $25.00 (minimum) and all usage over 2,000 gallons per month $10.00 per 1,000 gallons. These rates were effective with the April 25, 2022 billing cycle.
Please contact one of your City Council Members, Mayor Huston, or Clerk Baughman with any questions in regards to the City's new water rates.
