City utility rate review

Join Nick and the Portland City Council to learn more about a proposed 4.92% sewer, stormwater, and water services rate increase for FY 2014-15, and share your feedback with the Council.

The meeting will include a brief overview of operating budgets, capital improvement programs and projects, and the rate-making process for the Portland Water Bureau (PWB) and the Bureau of Environmental Services (BES). 

Typically, utility rate-making occurs near the end of the City budget process in May. To increase transparency, Nick and Mayor Hales are bringing the proposed rate increase to the public as soon as possible.

Your City Council, along with staff from both PWB and BES, will be on hand to answer questions.

The City Utility Rate Review will be held on March 19 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at Parkrose High School. Doors will open early, so if you want to come before the formal agenda begins to talk with staff or learn more about the bureaus, please do!

Learn more about the City budget process at the City Budget Office website.
