Derry council to discuss increased water rate
The plan calls for a 1 percent rate hike that will increase the average Derry water bill from $342.12 to $346.25 per year, according to town officials. The proposed rate increase was prompted by an increase in rates by Manchester Water Works, the wholesale supplier for the Town of Derry.
The rate increase by Manchester Water Works directly impacts Derry’s cost to supply water to its customers, according to the town. Historically, any rate increase has been passed directly on to Derry’s customers.
Acting Town Administrator Larry Budreau agrees with the staff’s recommendation.
The council meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Derry Municipal Center.
