Cedaredge trustees are in discussions about water and sewer rates, and hosted a meeting recently to reveal the results of a comparative rate study.

The town board will consider a resolution on changes to its water and sewer rates at the June 15 regular business meeting.

The town has several different rates based on the size of the water line providing domestic service. Examples of charges the board will be considering are as follows:

Water rates

In-town service up to 3/4-inch service, minimum charge $35.16 and $2.97 per 1,000 gallons used; out-of-town up to 3/4-inch service, minimum charge 52.74 and 4.45 per 1,000 gallons used.

• Sewer rates: in-town up to 3/4-inch water tap size, minimum charge per month $28 and $3.97 per 1,000 gallons of domestic water used; out-of-town up to 3/4-inch water tap size, minimum charge per month $42 and $3.97 per 1,000 gallons of domestic water used.

The trustees were provided with the following examples of charges that customers would face under the proposed new rates:
