Portland Utility Rate Review

East Side Big PipeCity Utility Rate Review

City of Portland utility rate-making typically occurs near the end of the city budget process in May. To bring a proposed rate increase to the public as soon as possible, the Portland City Council held a utility rate review on March 19, 2014 at Parkrose High School.

City staff presented information and heard public comments about the proposed 4.92% sewer, stormwater, and water services rate increase for the 2014-15 fiscal year that begins on July 1, 2014.

Staff gave an overview of operating budgets, capital improvement programs and projects, and the rate-making process for the Portland Water Bureau and the Portland Bureau of Environmental Services.
