From The Telluride Watch (Gus Jarvis):

The current draft of Ordinance 09-08 raises both water and sewer rates over a three-year period to get the operations back into a financially health operation. Sewer rates for users within town are currently $18 per month and the draft ordinance would raise that rate in $5 increments over the next three years starting on Jan. 1, 2010 where the monthly rate would be raised, if passed, to $25 per month. It would then be raised to $30 per month in 2011 and to $35 per month in 2012. (Council has recommended raising that increment to from $5 to $7 but is still up for review).

For water users in single-family homes, the draft ordinance would raise the rates from the current rate of $22 a month in $5 increments over the next three years with $27 per month being the rate in 2010, $32 per month in 2011 and $37 in 2012.
