The Chelan PUD Board of Commissioners have an item on their agenda for the 10AM meeting on October 7th titled “Water and Wastewater Rates Forecast Assumptions”. I’m not sure exactly what that means but it surely bears on the issue of rates for the Lake Wenatchee wastewater system operated by the PUD. When that system was new, the rates were $27 a month, are currently $61.80/month and there was a proposal put forth by the PUD staff several months ago to raise that to $107.70 over the next three years. Service for a single family home in Wenatchee is currently $22.54/month. If you have thoughts or concerns on this issue I encourage you to attend this meeting at the PUD building on N. Wenatchee Avenue to hear what is going on, voice your concerns and ask your questions.
