 ANNOUNCEMENTS

INCREMENTAL RATE INCREASE

On August 9th, 2011, the Board of County Commissioners approved a series of incremental rate adjustments for water and wastewater services provided by Lee County Utilities.  The first incremental rate increase became effective 10/01/2011 and we are now approaching the fourth incremental increase which will become effective 10/01/2014. These adjustments are necessary to recover the rising cost of operation and maintenance, the funding of improvements to our existing facilities and infrastructure, and repayment of debt, to provide safe and reliable service.

To minimize the impact on the customer’s utility bills, the rate increase is being adjusted incrementally as follows:
