The Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities may increase it’s water and sewer rates by 3.4% IN 2014, although a BOPU spokesman says that increase is still under discussion and no final decision has been made. Clint Bassett says BOPU board members are considering the 3.4 % rate hike because of increasing costs of doing business. He says the 3.4% figure matches the most recent Consumer Price Index increase for southeast Wyoming.

But Bassett cautions the BOPU board won’t make a final decision and whether to ask for the increase until it finalizes it’s budget on April 29. Even if the board does approve the increase, Bassett says the Cheyenne City Council will have the final word on the issue.

He says the council will consider that as part of it’s deliberation on the city’s fiscal year 2014 budget, which takes effect on July 1 of this year. However, the rate increase would not take effect until January 1, 2014, assuming it is approved.
