Monticello applies for hike in water rates
Placeholder Image
MADISON - The Monticello Water Utility is seeking a 30-percent rate increase, its first in 14 years, in order to keep up with inflation, according to a rate application filed this week with the Wisconsin Public Service Commission. If approved as submitted, an average residential household currently paying $16.56 monthly in volume charges for 6,000 gallons of water would pay $21.48, or $4.92 more, under the requested rates. The $7 monthly meter charge and the $4.05 Public Fire Protection charge collected on water bills also can be adjusted by the PSC during the pending rate case.
