New Utility Rates for 2024

New Utility Rates for 2024
Posted on 12/21/2023
The City of New Hope has finalized utility rate changes for 2024. The New Hope City Council approved the rates as part of the 2024 budget at its Dec. 11 meeting. Water and street light rates will increase by 5%, while sanitary sewer and storm drainage rates will increase by 4%. Recycling will increase by 18% or 90 cents per month.

The operation, maintenance, and capital improvements to the City’s sanitary sewer, water and storm sewer utility systems are each funded by separate enterprise funds within New Hope’s budget. The revenue for each fund comes from the fees charged to the City’s utility customers.

The total impact of the rate increases on an average residential utility customer using 5,000 gallons of water per month is estimated to be approximately $5.34 per month.

The 2024 utility rates go into effect on Jan. 1. For additional information, visit the utility billing section of the City’s website at
