Akeley to see moderate rise in utility bills
Akeley residents will see a slight increase in water and sewer rates, on the advice of the city's financial consultants.
The council approved an increase of 3.5 percent for the water and 2.5 percent for sewer.
Todd Hagen of the financial advisory firm of Ehlers told the council in a January work session the current rates meet operating expenses; the increase will provide future capital for improvements.
