The City of Kalispell last performed a rate study for the water and wastewater utilities in 2010. The City of Kalispell Public Works Department procured HDR Engineering in March 2019 to perform a water and sewer rate study. The rate study incorporates a cost of service analysis, revenue requirement analysis, and development of a corresponding rate structure. The goal of the rate study is to recommend rates that generate adequate funds to maintain the same quality of service and fund capital projects to meet the current and future water and sewer needs of our community.
Over the next several months, the City will be holding public meetings. The meetings will provide information on the rate study and allow for public comment. Provided below is a schedule for those meetings.
