Retail Rate Increase

To: Cass 2 Retail Water Patrons:

Whereas, at the September 8, 2022, monthly board meeting, the Board of Directors considered and unanimously agreed to pass on the annual rate increase from KCMO Water Services Department, and to a 5.0% rate increase to retail patrons.  The increase from KCMO for May 2022 is $0.19 per 1000 gallons.  The 5.0% rate increase is in addition to the increase from KCMO, and is required to fund annual replacement projects.  The 5.0% rate adjustment was discussed in the public meetings held in early 2022, prior to the April 5, 2022 bond election.  Retail rates have remained constant since 10/1/2016, excepting the annual cost of water adjustments from KCMO.  It is typical to examine and adjust retail rates as required, on a 5-year cycle.  This increase will become effective with any and all billings as of October 1, 2022.  For an average bill of 5,000 gallons, the revised rates would increase the monthly bill by $4.60 for a total annual increase of approximately $55.20.  See Table 1 below for the proposed rate structure.
