A public meeting is set for 7 p.m. Oct. 22 at Lacey City Hall to share information about wastewater rates, which are set to increase on Jan. 1.
The meeting will be held at Lacey City Hall council chambers, 420 College Street S.E.
A city of Lacey resident currently pays $17.30 per month for city sewer, but the wastewater portion of their bill is set to increase about 0.74 cents, or 4.25 percent, beginning Jan. 1.
The rates are expected to increase 4.25 percent every year through 2019. By the end of 2019, the average bill will be about $21.30, plus any applicable utility taxes.
The increase applies to customers both within and outside the city limits, including commercial, duplex, senior, multifamily and mobile home users.
The rate change increase is used to maintain, repair and replace existing infrastructure. Lacey has 210 miles of sewer line, 48 sewer pump stations, eight odor control facilities and 16,400 service connections.
