Utility Rate Increase Starting July 1, 2021
Posted: Tuesday, June 08, 2021

The City Council has approved rate increases for Electric, Stormwater, and Transportation (Street User fee) effective July 1, 2021, based upon:
  • Cost of service studies and corresponding rate recommendations
  • City of Ashland master plan recommendations
  • Adjustments for necessary infrastructure improvements to comply with state and federal regulations
Rate increases are based upon general consumer indices with the intent to set rates at a level which accurately reflects the costs of providing utility service to each unique rate class. All other utilities are being held without any rate increase. 
The impact of the proposed increase on a residential utility account using 750 kWh per month would be:
  FY 2020-21 FY 2021-22 Difference
Electric Residential $73.70 $76.88 $3.18
Stormwater Residential $4.99 $5.43 $0.44
Street User Residential $9.37 $9.56 $0.19
Total $88.06 $91.87 $3.81
