The City of Chaffee will be increasing sewer rates effective October 1, 2017 to meet a rate schedule required to finance the city’s water improvement project.
The rates will be based on OCtober water meter usage readings which will be read the first of November. You will not see the change until the bill you receive the first week in December.
Water and garbage rates will not change at this time.
Please call city hall at 573-887-3558 for more information
New rate schedule
First 1000 Gallons = $6.00 Each additional 100 Gallons $.30 of water used
Surcharge for customers out of the city limits $.37 each 100 gallons of water used
On average a customer that uses 5000 gallons of water will see an increase of $6.89 to your overall bill.
This is the first of two scheduled increases in order to meet the requirements of our loan agreement with USDA to repair and upgrade our sewer collection and treatment system. The second increase will be an equal amount and will occur in 2018.
