Chatham To Consider Water Rate Hike Next Week


Chatham’s move to establish its own water supply is turning out to be more expensive than originally estimated.

 

The State Journal-Register reports the village board will consider a water rate hike for Chatham residents at its next meeting Tuesday.

 

Chatham stopped purchasing water from City Water Light and Power and instead joined the South Sangamon Water Commission with New Berlin… but that commission says it must now raise wholesale rates because of lower revenues and higher costs than anticipated.

 

Chatham officials say they still believe having their own water supply will be a better deal for residents in the long run than staying with CWLP.
