Roll call vote. Ayes: K. Lickteig, Kastner, Buller, Hoaglund, and Eck. Nays: none.  The water rate increase was proposed as follows: Service Charge of $10.44 per month (up from $5.00) Usage rate of $7.56 per 1,000 gallons (up from $4.50 per 1,000 gallons) Surcharge $3.00 (no change) This will lead to an increase of $12.37 per month per customer on average. The reason for this increase is the need for a new water tower.
