Utility Cost of Service & Rate Design Study

Bismarck Utility Rate Study Public Input Meeting
Thursday, October 18, 2018 from 5:30pm-7:00pm
Bismarck Public Works is to receive additional input from citizens. This meeting will include information about:

1.    The costs of system expansion

2.    A potential change from existing trunk line fees to a new schedule of capital charges

3.    A potential change in stormwater detention requirements and fees

The Bismarck City Commission approved the contract for engineering consulting services with Stantec at the April 24, 2018 commission meeting.  Stantec will evaluate Utility Operation enterprise fund and user rates involving the water, sewer, and stormwater divisions. The study will review and assess the existing fee structure, development cost policies, special assessments, and surcharges to identify strengths and weaknesses.
