NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED INCREASE IN CITY OF DILLON WATER RATES

The Dillon City Council will hold a hearing on June 2, 2021 at 6:00 P.M. in the Council Chambers at the City Hall, 125 N. Idaho, Dillon, Montana to take public comment on the proposed increase in water rates described below.



The proposed water rate increase is to pay for improvements to the City’s water system, including the replacement of two existing cast-iron transmission mains with 5,500 linear feet of new water transmission main that crosses below the Beaverhead River and replacing approximately 7,000 linear feet of existing water mains in the City (the “Project”).

The City proposes to increase water rates by $12.00 per month for each Equivalent Dwelling Unit (“EDU”) times the EDU multiplier based on water service size as described below. The proposed effective date of the new rates is July 1, 2021.
