Water utility tracker update

930979_68230934-modIn February, the Town Council adopted an updated water rate tracker that will go into effect with the bills due in April. A copy of the adopted resolution is available here. The purpose of the rate tracker increase is to compensate for increased rates by our water supplier Indiana-American Water; the tracker does not fund maintenance or other aspects of the water utility.

Indiana-American is increasing their rate for water sold to the Town by 4.35%. However, this increase is not passed through to customers directly. Instead, the rate tracker increase is figured by dividing the total cost of the increase among all water customers. By this calculation, the tracker increase to customers is only 1.521%.

Here is an example of the effect of the tracker for the typical household using 6,242 gallons/month:

Total $ 47.17 $ 47.88
  Current After tracker
Base charge $ 31.01 $ 31.48
Usage charge $ 16.16 $ 16.40

Your bill will vary of course, depending on your household water usage. 

If you have any questions concerning the tracker calculation or its implementation, please feel free to contact the Town Manager Dennis Capozzi at 530-0200.
