The Board for the Municipal Authority of the City of Monongahela approved the Fiscal Year 2020 Budget at their monthly meeting held on December 19, 2019.
The budget sets expenditures for 2020 at $2,472,979 which results in an increase in base monthly rates for Monongahela residents of 12.03%. The rate increase will raise the monthly base fee for those residents using less than 3,000 gallons of water from $37.65 to $42.18 per month. Based on required Fiscal Year 2019 revenues, the new rates in effect for the Fiscal Year 2020 will generate sufficient revenues for the 2020 Budget.
Please note that the rate increase will go into effect when the January bills are mailed out in mid-February.
