Water, wastewater rates to increase slightly

The typical city water/wastewater customer will see an average increase of about $2.70 in their bill in 2013.

The Salina City Commission voted 5-0 on Monday to approve a fee increase which will meet the short-term needs of the water and wastewater utility and provide for the beginning of a foundation for meeting future needs, such as addressing the groundwater contamination issue at the Salina Municipal Airport.

The change represents an increase of 3.8 percent for the typical residential customer, City Finance Director Rod Franz said in a report to the commission.
