Utility Rate Increases Effective with March Billing
Utility rates are reviewed biennially to ensure adequate funding for maintenance and improvements of the utility systems. The last review was deferred due to the COVID pandemic. The last water rate increase was in 2016 and the last storm water rate increase was in 2018.
After careful consideration, the Fairview City Council determined a rate adjustment to the City’s water (4%) and storm water (9%), to take effect on March 1, 2022 and March 1, 2023, is essential to ensure adequate funding for these critical systems.
Effective with the March 2022 billing, the overall increase for a typical residential customer will be 2.79% or $2.51 per month. Effective with the March 2023 billing, the overall increase will be 2.87% or $2.66 per month for the typical residential customer.
