City Utility Rate Review

Second Annual City Utility Rate Review

On March 12, the City of Portland invited members of the community to the second annual City Utility Rate Review meeting.

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss drinking water and sewer-storm water rates.

Presentation at City Utility Rate Review Mayor Charlie Hales, City Council members, and management staff from both the Portland Water Bureau and the Bureau of Environmental Services were on hand to answer questions and discuss the combined 4.8 percent rate increase proposed by the City’s two utility bureaus for fiscal year 2015-16.

As a courtesy to our customers, the presentation given during the Utility Rate Review has been uploaded to this website.  

Portlanders in attendance were invited to provide feedback and pose questions to the Council. At the conclusion of the meeting, city staff committed to post follow-up answers online in April 2015.
