Looks like Kuna residents can expect a couple of small rate increases in the coming year in sewer and pressurized irrigation bills. Kuna city engineer Gordon Law presented his budgets to City Council Monday night and hinted that those two funds likely would need upward fee adjustments of “1 to 3 percent.”
The monthly cost for sewer services is $24.65, last raised in 2008 for the 2008-09 budget. At the time, Law had informed council members that sewer revenues were about 22 percent below expenses, necessitating a fee increase.
That was even before the city brought online the new north wastewater treatment plant last year. Law decided to forgo a sewer fee increase in the current year’s budget, when the city brought the new plant online.
