Osage Beach looks to raise water, sewer rates

OSAGE BEACH - The city will be holding a public hearing on March 2 on a possible increase in water and sewer rates for city users.

The last rate increase was in 2018 and should have been addressed in 2020 but COVID-19 came about and was one of the factors in the rate increase delay.

“The city is committed to operating its water and sewer systems in a safe, lawful, and financially sound manner, and to provide excellent water and sewer utility services,” said City Administrator Jeana Woods.  “To achieve this goal, it has become necessary to increase user fee rates.”

According to Woods, the proceeds of such user fees are needed for the purpose of operating, maintaining, and improving the water and sewer systems.

The proposed rate schedule changes are anticipated to be effective May 1, 2023, upon Board of Aldermen approval.

A Public Hearing will be held on March 2, 2023, at the 6:00 p.m. Board of Aldermen meeting at City Hall.

The Board of Aldermen was presented with rate schedule change details at last Thursday’s Board meeting.
