Water Rates in Dewey Set to Increase


 The Dewey Public Works Authority met yesterday regarding water utility fee rates.

 The main item of discussion was on Ordinance Number 2024-1609 on amending water rates of the Dewey City Code. Mayor Tom Hays says the cost of water in the city is going to increase.

The increase is set to take effect immediately. City Manager Kevin Trease says the change is due in large part to inflation.

Trease says this increase covers the water rate increase for 2021 through 2025. Most customers should expect an increase of up to $5 and possible more depending on water usage. The rates will also increase outside of the city limits.
