As of Feb. 1, residents of Fairview will see their water rates increase by $2.94 percent.

The flat fee for a typical residential customer will increase 48 cents per month, and consumption fees, which are based on how much water a household uses, will increase 6 cents per unit (or 100 cubic feet).

Every other year, the city reviews its utility rates to ensure adequate funding for maintaining and improving its water, sewer and stormwater systems.

The review was last performed in January 2013, said Lesa Folger, deputy finance director with the city of Fairview.

At that time, the Fairview City Council approved water rate increases effective Feb. 1, 2014.

Sewer and stormwater rates did not require an increase, Folger said.
