While the effective date of the increase is October 1, 2019 customers will not see it reflected in their utility bills until the second week of October for first billing.

The City of Milton is charged with providing the lowest possible rate for customers while maintaining safe and reliable services.

Water Bill/Sewer

With the 5 percent rate increase (which is lower than inflation rate of 7.9 percent), the average customer will see an increase of $1.19 in their water bill and $1.39 in sewer.

Water/sewer hasn’t increased in 4 years.

Natural Gas

Natural Gas of Milton’s rates have not adjusted since 2008

With the 10 percent rate increase in Natural Gas, customers will see an average increase in their bill of about $3.34

Sanitation

Sanitation rates are increasing 10 percent which will raise the average customer from $16.87 to $18.56

While the city knows this is difficult on the customer, the city must increase rates to keep working for residents. As a public utility under efficient and economical management, the city is permitted to earn revenues to maintain financial stability while covering proper operating expenses.
