Without any discussion, the City Council voted 4-3 in favor of raising utility rates for the next four years by 4%.
Due to the lack of discussion, we have no idea the motivations behind any councilmember’s vote.
What we do know is that your future city bills will be higher.
Voting in favor of the utility rate increase were Councilmembers Palmer, Shadko, Hopkins and Door.
Voting against were Mayor Knutsen and Councilmembers Vermillion and Swanson.
