Libby City Council plans to conduct a public hearing on Monday, May 18 at 6 p.m. at City Hall regarding a proposed sewer rate increase.

On April 20, the council adopted a resolution to increase rates for users of the municipal sewer system. The city anticipates issuing sewer system revenue bonds in the amount of $1.775 million to help pay for improvements to the system.

The city currently charges users of the system a flat rate of $21.49 per month. In addition, the city charges a usage fee of $1.34 per 1,000 gallons of water used per month based on water meter measurements.

Based on the proposed annual budget and issuance of the bonds, the flat rate would be increased to $23.28 per month with the proposed usage charge to increase to $2.00 per 1,000 gallons used per month.
