Water & Sewer Improvement Fee Increases

The City of Ossian will soon be required to comply with the Iowa DNR and update the City’s wastewater treatment facility to their standards. In anticipation of this requirement, the City will raise water and sewer improvement fee rates to prepare for the substantial costs incurred by this project. Each fee will increase by $4. The Council reviewed the current revenues and expenses and determined that a rate increase is necessary in order to maintain the system and to build reserves in anticipation for the project. We are committed to maintaining the lowest rates possible while delivering quality service that meets state standards.
