On July 1st, the City of Belmond will be raising rates for sewer and water. According to City Administrator Darrell Steven Carlyle, the move was necessary under the present business climate.
A monthly user of 3,000 gallons of water will see and increase of $1.46 and water will increase by $2.76. the council was presented with a 16% increase, but decided to lower that rate to 10%.
Carlyle stated that the rate increases will probably not stop there as 2022 may have another increase in store for residents and businesses.
