IF YOU LIVE IN GRANTS PASS, YOUR UTILITY RATES ARE GOING UP. LAST NIGHT, THE CITY COUNCIL APPROVED AN INCREASE TO STORM WATER FEES. THE MONEY WILL HELP PAY FOR UPGRADES TO THE CITY’S STORM WATER PROGRAM. THE COUNCIL *DIDN’T SAY HOW MUCH THE FEE WOULD GO UP… BUT IN THE PAST, COUNCILORS SAID IT COULD BE BETWEEN FOUR AND SIX DOLLARS A MONTH. THE CHANGES GO INTO EFFECT JULY FIRST.
