City Rate Review Meeting Follow-Up Now Available 

On March 19, 2014, the City of Portland invited members of the community to the first ever City Utility Rate Review meeting. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss drinking water and sewer-storm water rates. 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 4.92 percent rate increase proposed by the City’s two utility bureaus. 

Portlanders in attendance were invited to provide feedback and pose questions to the Council. At the conclusion of the hearing, city staff committed to providing follow-up answers by Wednesday, April 9, 2014.
