Lansing, MI - Lansing Board of Water and Light commissioners say yes to a proposal to hike utility rates this fall.
General Manager Peter Lark is calling for a rate increase of 7% for electricity, 7% for steam, 9% for electricity and 3% for chilled water.
A typical residential bill would rise about $3.69 a month.
Lark says the hikes will bring in an additional $8 million in revenue for the BWL.
The proposal must still get the approval of the full board. They will vote on September 23.
A public hearing on the issue is set for September 18.
If approved, the rate increase would go into effect on November 1.
