Rockford Residents and Members of the Community,
The City of Rockford will implement the following rates and schedule changes which will be reflected in the August 2014 utility bill:
Water usage rates: $5.54 per gallons
Discontinue charging a minimal water use of 3,000 gallons
Base rate for water and wastewater per month of $4.95
Wastewater usage rates: $7.45 per 1,000 gallons
Discontinue the averaging method for calculating wastewater and usage will be on actual gallons used
These changes have been made due to the increase of operating costs, 2014 Utility Bonds and Utility projects.
