    Oldsmar water rates rise in April

    OLDSMAR -- The first of two increases in the city's water rates will take effect in April. City Council members approved the new rates Tuesday.

    Consultants who studied the city's rate structure concluded that the city does not bring in enough revenue to pay for necessary improvements to the system. Residents who use 5,000 gallons of water a month -- the average usage for a single-family home -- now pay $18.70 per month for water. The first rate increase will push that bill to $20.25 per month. The second change, in April 2002, will increase the cost to $21.20 per month. Residents also will face an increase in the wastewater rates. The residential monthly bill for 5,000 gallons of wastewater is now $24.90. That will increase to $26.65 in April.
