City Council Approves Fiscal Year 2019 Utility Rate Increases
ST. PETERSBURG, FL (August 23, 2018) – St. Petersburg City Council voted to increase water, wastewater, reclaimed water, stormwater, and sanitation utility rates today during a public hearing. Utility rate increases will take effect on October 1, 2018.
FY19 Rates are as follows:
Customers will see adjustments to monthly sanitation and stormwater fees on their October bills; while rate increases for water, wastewater and reclaimed water will appear on their November bills.
Rates will help fund much needed investments in aging infrastructure; as well as assist in lowering the city’s cash-to-debt ratio, which will save the city hundreds of millions of dollars in interest rates over the next few decades.
