Utility Rate Citizen Committee @ Public Works and Planning Building
May 21 @ 6:00 pm

The City of Golden Public Works Department is conducting a rate study for our water, sewer and stormwater (drainage) services in 2019. We are looking at how customers are charged for water, sewer and stormwater services, and the amount we charge for service.

The last rate study was completed more than 20 years ago and much has changed since that time, including water use habits, average demand and peak day needs, available technology and switching to monthly billing to name a few. Given these changes, the study will help us evaluate pricing objectives such as revenue stability, conservation and affordability to ensure we can support our high-quality water, sewer and stormwater services well into the future.

The Utility Rate Citizen Committee was formed to look into these issues and present a recommendation to City Council later this summer. The group first met on February 19 and will meet on the third Tuesday of the month through July at 6 p.m. in the Public Works / Planning Building, 1445 10th Street.
