Macon Municipal Utilities Adjusts Rate Structures for Water Services
At the December 19, 2022 Board of Public Works meeting utility rate structures were revised for water services provided by Macon Municipal Utilities. The new rates for in-town and wholesale customers will be effective with February 1, 2023 customer billing statements.
Residential customers – Meter Fee to increase $3.00 per month
Commercial customers under 1 million gallons per month – Meter Fee to increase $7.60 per month
Commercial customers over 1 million gallons per month – Meter Fee to increase $30.00 per month and increases to per 1,000-gallon tiers.
Water service rates were adjusted to account for increased operational expenses and future infrastructure planning. Water rates were last increased with December 2018 customer billing statements. Water for resale customers also received rate adjustments per allowances in their contracts.
MMU retained the services of Toth & Associates, Inc. from Springfield, Missouri to perform electric and water cost of service studies in 2022. No changes were adopted by the Board of Public Works for electric retail rates.
