The average City of West Point water user will be paying about $6 more per month for that water based on estimates presented at last night’s (Tuesday) city council meeting.

Andrew Ross, Director of Retail Services & Member Services for the Nebraska Municipal Power Pool was on hand to update the city council on the still-preliminary water rate study done by NMPP.

That study, based on the city needing $3 million for the water treatment plant and water main improvements, shows a need for a 25% water rate increase. That percentage equates to a monthly jump of $5.50 to $6 for the average residential water user in the city, according to City Administrator Tom Goulette.
