The Chelan County PUD staff is proposing that Lake Wenatchee wastewater rates be increased 15% each year for the next four years- an aggregate increase of 70% plus. Public meetings to discuss the proposal will be held at 5:30 p.m. on April 24 at the Wenatchee PUD Auditorium and at 12:00 Noon on Saturday, April 27th, at the Fire District 3 station at 228 Chumstick Highway in Leavenworth. PUD Staff will provide an update on the rate proposal at the April 15 regular commission meeting and a public hearing will be held on May 6 before commissioners are asked to take action. If approved, the new rates would be effective June 1. Please try to attend one of these meetings to hear these proposals and voice your comments on them.
