Jamesport City Council approves water rate increase

Jamesport Missouri

The Jamesport City Council voted Monday evening to raise Jamesport water company rates.

The base rate for zero to 1,000 gallons of water will increase from $23.00 per month to $24.00 per month. Each additional 1,000 gallons will increase from $11.00 to $11.75. The increase in water rates will take effect on the April 2020 billing cycle.

The vote was taken after City Clerk Shelley Page discussed a letter received from Jamesport’s water supplier Livingston County Public Water Supply District Number 4. Page said the water district will raise water rates for its customers by six and three-quarters percent effective in April.
