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 (per 4,000 gallons of water/wastewater) are as follows:

Water - $30.52 (3.75% increase)
Wastewater - $45.64 (8.25% increase)
Reclaimed water - $29.59 (10.75% increase)
Stormwater - $11 (10% increase)
Sanitation (with Recycling) - $26.61 (5.25% increase)

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.
