RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Rapid City Council this week voted to pass an amendment regarding Rapid City’s water rates.
The amendment passed on a five to four vote. This is amending rates for the water and water reclamation utilities across Rapid City to help with crucial water facility improvements and maintenance.
This rate increase will be covered over the next five years, with the average increase in a water bill being around $4. This means that Rapid City residents could see an over-$60 water bill and a waste bill that could go up to $57.
Rapid City residents could start seeing these rates implemented on January 1 and will be alerted to the changes via their water bill.
City officials say that along with rate change reflected on the water bill, there is information available on the city’s website.
