Utility Rate Changes Move to Third Reading
January 22, 2020
The Sidney City Council met Tuesday, Jan. 14, consenting to moving proposed water and electricity rates to the third reading.
On Dec. 3, the city council was presented with a proposal to update the water and electricity rates. The proposal said water base rates were restructured about three years ago “to reflect actual user size as the basis for base rates.” Water unit rates were left unchanged when the base rate was last changed.
