In 2018, the Quanz Reservoir project engineer recommended to increase the average monthly water fee per user by $1.91 to cover the estimated $460,000 KDHE Loan taken to design and construct Quanz Reservoir. With the Quanz Reservoir project underway, the City Council Water Committee recommended increasing the minimum water rate by $2.00.
On March 1, 2021 Phillipsburg City Council adopted Resolution #292 setting water rates to be effective with all water billing after April 1, 2021. Business, residential, and industrial customers inside of city limits will see a $2.00 increase. The minimum charge for the first 1,000 gallons or less per month will change from $19.00 a month to $21.00 a month. Customers outside of city limits will have an increase in the minimum charge from $38.00 to $42.00. Rates for usage over 1,000 will remain the same. Check out the signed resolution for more details.
