The City of Oakwood Ohio annually lists southwest Ohio water and sewer rates for all area communities. Below are the results from the 2017 survey.
I try to keep things real here. Our water rates continue to be competitive. Our sewer rates continue to climb as we work on replacing older pipes, make upgrades to our aging water and sewer plants and start to implement the long term control plan.
This isn’t all good news, but I want you to see where we rank around southwest Ohio. More information helps people understand where they stand and what is happening.
I understand and appreciate the burden that higher rates put on lower and fixed income families. I hope that we do a good job moving forward showing you where the money is going and what repairs and changes are being made with the increased rates collected.
Have a great week.
