ARTICLE Begins: New business on the 10/24 Town Council agenda is consideration of an ordinance (on first reading) to amend Town Code relating to water utility rates. Town of Brownsburg water rates have not increased in 10 years, while expenditures and inflation have both increased. The need for new capital improvements to keep up with the Town’s growth and increasing water supply demands have also contributed to the need for a proposed rate increases. Based on a Water Rate Increase Study, the proposed rate increase includes the following: Jan. 2020 – 15%; Jan. 2021 – 10%; Jan. 2022 – 10%; Jan. 2023 -5%; and Jan. 2024 – 5%. It is proposed that on January 1 of each year beginning in 2025, a 2.5% cost of living adjustment will be added to the previous year’s rates and charges.
