Sewage Rate Increase Set to Take Effect

Latrobe Municipal Authority sewage customers will experience an increase sewage rates beginning in fall 2019 (please check back for exact date) as the rate changes previously approved in June of 2017 are implemented.  The changes include the addition of an Administration and Operations fee of $6.50/month and an increase in the sewage usage rate from $2.30/1,000 gallons to $2.50/1,000 gallons (approved in June 2017 at $2.75/1,000 gallons but recently reduced). 

The administration and operations fee has been added to fund operations of the municipal authority’s physical assets including the sewage treatment plant, collection system, equipment and vehicles, and office building.

In addition to the rate changes, the minimum usage charge of 15,000 gallons/quarter will be eliminated as customers will now pay for actual usage per 1,000 gallons.

The delay in rate change implementation was due to litigation that has subsequently been resolved.

Below is an example of the rate change for a customer averaging 4,000 gallons per month.

 

Current Monthly Charges

$2.30 X 5 (15,000 gallons minimum quarterly usage charge = 5,000 gallons/month) = $11.50

$1.50 Monthly Lateral Sewer Fee

$6.00 Monthly Debt Service

Total Monthly Charge: $19.00/month

 

New Monthly Charges

$2.50 X 4 Usage Charge ($2.50 per 1,000 gallons; 4,000 gallons usage) = $10.00

$2.00 Lateral Sewer Fee ($2.00 per month)

$6.00 Debt Service ($6.00/month)

$6.50 Administration and Operations Fee ($6.50/month)

Total Quarterly Charge: $24.50/month

 

The Latrobe Municipal Authority recognizes the inconvenience of increasing rates and continues to be committed to having among the most competitive rates in the Commonwealth.   Unfortunately, projects mandated by the PA DEP approved Act 537 Sewage Facilities Plan will continue to place a financial burden on the Latrobe Municipal Authority as these projects progress.  Fiscal prudence will continue to be exercised to the extent possible in order to minimize future increases.

* Please note that previous communications indicated rates will change on July 1st, 2019.  Although rate changes will NOT take affect at that time, the exact date has not yet been determined.  Please check back periodically for updates.
