During their meeting Monday evening (May 3rd), Alpena City Council members approved new water sewer rates for the upcoming fiscal year.

The recommendation by City Engineer Rich Sullenger states that the rates will be $6.65 per 1,000 gallons for water and $6.79 per 1,000 gallons for sewer.

Officials say, with the proposed rates, the City would anticipate generating almost 3 point 7 million ($3,658,900.00) for reinvestment into the systems for capital improvements. This is below what was projected for last fiscal year. With the Township paying at the current rates of $4.05 for water and $3.75 for sewer, the revenues projected are nearly 1 point 3 million ($1,255,890.00) in less revenue than based on Alpena Township paying the same rates as the City of Alpena

The new rates will take affect July 1st of this year.
