Starting next year, Wake County residents could be paying more on their water bills.

Raleigh’s city leaders will discuss a rate hike tonight to determine if customers should have to pay more to do everyday things like shower, cook and clean.

Staff members are recommending a 3 percent increase in billing.  To the average residential customer, they say, that comes out to about an extra $1.68 per month.

The City of Raleigh Public Utilities Department provides water and sanitary sewer service to approximately 195,000 metered water and sewer customers and a service population of approximately 570,000 people in Raleigh, Garner, Wake Forest, Rolesville, Knightdale, Wendell and Zebulon areas.
