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. 
 
EXAMPLE:
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
