Utility Rate Hike Resolutions Before the Forest City Council

Forest City residents will notice a rate hike in their utility bill this summer. Forest City Mayor Byron Ruiter explains just how much of a jump will take effect.

The second reading of the utility ordinance for electricity, solid waste, water, and sewer rates will take place at the council’s May 7th meeting. If approved after a third reading, the new rates would go into effect beginning July 1st.
