Sewer, garbage utility rate increases in Layton
The City Council is currently going through the budget process for fiscal year 2015-2016. Part of this process is a review of utility rates for water, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, refuse, and street lighting.
As was noted last year in a letter from Mayor Stevenson, the North Davis Sewer District (NDSD) will be raising their rates again effective July 1, 2015. The base sewer rate for both residential and commercial customers will go from the current amount of $20.45 per month to $23.45 per month. This increase is solely associated with activities of the NDSD and does not represent an increase by the City. It is also anticipated that NDSD will increase rates an additional $3 in 2017 and 2018.
The City is currently renegotiating the refuse collection contract with Waste Management. It is proposed, that citizens and customers of refuse services will see an increase of $0.35 per month on their first can and $0.25 per month on their second can. This increase represents a 1.8% increase in the cost of the contract. Based on the proposed contract this increase should cover collection through June 30, 2020.
The rates for water, storm sewer, and street lighting will remain unchanged during fiscal year 2015-2016.
