Frederick: Water rates jump 20.2 percent


From the Carbon Valley Farmer and Miner (Ben Wiebesiek):

The 20.2-percent rate increase was approved Nov. 27. Trustee Rafer Burnham voted against the increase. Frederick water customers will see the new rate go into effect on the first water bill of the year. Town Manager Matt LeCerf said the changes to the water utility ordinance were significant but necessary…

The Central Weld County Water District, which treats and provides water to Frederick, introduced a new method for calculating costs. This resulted in a 19-percent increase in the cost of the town’s potable water supply…

When designing the proposed rate structures, town staff included the first 3,000 gallons of water used within the base rate.
