New utility rates effective Jan. 1, 2021

As part of the 2021 budget process, City Council approved a 5% increase for monthly Water Reclamation Service Fees which will result in an approximate increase of $1.40/month for typical single family customers.  This necessary increase will fund improvements to our treatment facility in order to meet State requirements to reduce Nitrogen and Phosphorous discharges into Coal Creek. The total anticipated cost for this project is $27 million and will be funded through bond issuances repayable over the next 20 years. Water and Stormwater Rates were set in prior years to also increase in 2021 by 5%. 

The total billing impact for all three utilities will be approximately $3.50/month for the typical customer. This figure may vary during summer months depending on individual outdoor water use. For additional information about City of Lafayette Utility Billing, view lafayetteco.gov/UtilityBilling

Nuevas tarifas de servicios públicos a partir del 1 de enero de 2021


Como parte del proceso presupuestario del 2021, el Concejo Municipal aprobó un aumento de 5% para las tarifas mensuales del servicio de recuperación de agua, lo que resultará en un aumento aproximado de $1.40 por mes para los clientes de hogar típicos de una sola familia.

Este aumento necesario financiará mejoras en nuestro centro de tratamiento para cumplir con los requisitos obligatorios del Estado para reducir las descargas de nitrógeno y fósforo en Coal Creek. El costo total previsto para este proyecto es de $27 millones y será financiado a través de emisiones de bonos reembolsables durante los próximos 20 años. Tarifas de servicio de agua y aguas pluviales se fijaron en años anteriores para que también aumentaran un 5% en 2021. 

El impacto total en la facturación de los tres servicios públicos será de aproximadamente $3.50 al mes para el cliente típico. Esta cifra puede variar durante los meses de verano dependiendo del consumo individual de agua para el exterior.
