New water rates for Eugene delayed

New water rates for Eugene delayed

November 9th, 2012 in News

The Cole County Commission decided Wednesday to delay setting the rates for the Eugene water system. The town's water customers currently pay $16.32 a month, regardless of how much water they consume.

Under a rate plan approved last month, that would jump to a minimum of $30 a month, plus $6 for each 1,000 gallons used. That means the "average" customer who uses 5,000 gallons each month, would see their bill jump from $16.32 to $60.
