Large Utility Increases for Crystal?
By Andrew Richter
The city of Crystal has a long work session planned for Thursday August 22 and there is a lot on the agenda regarding the 2014 budget. One thing on the agenda is utility rates. Take a look at city staff’s recommendations;
We are recommending a 5.15% increase in water rates for 2014 with additional increases in the following years.
In other words, pay more now and in the future.
A 3.85% in sewer rates in proposed.
And if that isn’t enough…..
A 6.9% increase!
Call and email the city council and tell them these rate increases are unacceptable!
