Forum discusses OMU water rate increase

Posted: Updated:

OMU invited utility customers to an open forum to ask questions about a proposed water rate increase. 

OMU is proposing to raise the average households water rates by $2.55 in April and raise it again by $2.96 by April of next year.  

The company says the proposed water rate increase is because households are using less water and OMU's costs continue to rise. 

OMU's commission will consider the rate increase for approval Thursday. It will then be presented to the Owensboro City Commission on March 4.
