IN EFFECT: UTILITY IMPROVEMENTS AND RATE RESTRUCTURING PLAN

The City of Natalia, with the assistance from USDA Rural Development and M&S Engineering, have been working progressively towards making facility and infrastructure improvements to the city's utility systems since May 2015; and, in March 2016, M&S Engineering presented City Council with Water and Wastewater Preliminary Engineering and Evaluation Reports and electively decided to move forward with projects prioritized as high-importance.  The City of Natalia received loan and grant funding assistance through USDA Rural Development to complete the infrastructure improvement projects identified in the Utility Improvements Plan. 

To sustain a safe and reliable water and wastewater resource, restructuring of the utility rates were necessary to address the imbalance of utility revenue and expenses, repayment of the capital debt, to absorb replacement costs for short-lived assets, and to additionally generate sufficient revenue to cover annual inflation of maintenance and operational costs.

The restructured utility rates become effective next fiscal year beginning October 1, 2017; specifically starting on the meter-reading period beginning September 15th and ending October 15th for the billing date of November 1, 2017.
