Fairview Point - February 2023
Utility Rate Increases Effective with March Billing
Utility rates are reviewed biennially to ensure adequate funding for the maintenance and improvement of the City’s utility systems. The last rate review took place in 2021.
After careful consideration, on December 15, 2021, the Fairview City Council approved the proposed adjustments to the City’s water (4%) and storm water (9%) rates, to take effect on March 1, 2022 and March 1, 2023. Council determined these increases to be essential in ensuring adequate funding for these critical utility systems. An increase in sewer rates was not deemed necessary.
Effective with the March 2023 billing, the overall increase for a typical residential customer will be approximately $2.66 per month (2.9%). Actual amounts will vary with your water usage. If you would like additional information, please contact the City Finance Department at 503-665-7929.
The Main Streets on Halsey Project seeks to transform the three-mile stretch of NE Halsey Street into a vibrant and attractive “main street” for all users.
The project is currently focusing on transportation improvements, and we want your feedback so the design reflects community needs and aspirations.
Please share your experiences and ideas through a brief online survey that will inform the street design for the corridor! The survey begins February 6.
