City to consider two percent sewer/reclaimed water rate increase

Post Date:09/13/2018 1:10 PM

Panama City Beach sewer and reclaimed water customers will see a two percent increase in rates after October 1, if approved by the Panama City Beach City Council. A first reading of an ordinance to increase rates occurs tonight during the Council’s Sept. 13 meeting at 6 p.m.

A 2016 study recommended minimal annual increases for wastewater and reclaimed water to adequately fund operational and capital improvement costs of the system.

Even with the rate increase, sewer rates for the average homeowner inside the City limits remain among the lowest in the county. The monthly charge would increase 56 cents, from $27.11 to $27.67, for a typical household using 6,000 gallons of water per month.

Water rates are not scheduled to increase again until after 2020.  

Reclaimed water is treated wastewater and is used for landscape irrigation in certain portions of the City’s utility service area.

If you are unable to attend the meeting at City Hall, you can watch it live on the City's Facebook page located here: City of Panama City Beach-Government
