Utility Bills, Rates and Charges

Sewer Rate Adjustments to be Considered

Fort Wayne City Utilities has proposed, and the City Council will be considering, adjustments to the rates and charges our sewer customers pay for City Utiilties' sewer service.  The only income received by the sewer utiity is what our customers pay for the service we provide.  All the revenue we collect is used to operate, maintain and improve the system.  City Utilities has completed about one-third of the investments required to improve our combined sewer system for better river water quality.  The improvements are mandated by state and federal government regulators and include firm deadlines for completion.  More than 90% of the additional revenue to be collected will be invested in meeting these mandates and protecting homes and neighborhoods from sewer backups.
