and relative demand they place on the water system," said Utilities Director David Stoneback. "As a result, over 60 percent of Evanston water customers actually realized a decrease in the water portion of their bill."
Water bills will increase about 10 percent in 2011
Staff's recommendation includes selling $18.1 million in bonds over four years and increasing water rates over three years 10 percent in 2011, 5 percent in 2012 and 3 percent in 2013. Those rate increases and bond sales would each require council approval.

increased its water rates for all customers since March 1998, Stoneback said.
Evanston last modified its water rates in July 2006. Prior to Cheap Louboutin Sneakers that, water was billed based on use alone. The 2006 modification included a service charge based on meter size.
The change does not affect the sewer rate for Evanston residents. Instead, it creates a two tiered sewer rate for tax exempt properties. The first 100 units of water used during a bi monthly billing period will still be billed at the current $3.94 per unit rate. But any water use after that 100 unit mark will be charged at $4.53 per unit.
The rate increase approved recently by the city council adds about $14 to the average annual water bill for a single family home, according to city documents.
Staff is also proposing issuing $17 million in bonds over four years to refinance a portion of the current sewer fund debt. If council approves staff's recommendation to sell bonds, the city's portion of the property tax levy would need to increase by 0.68 percent per year, or 2.7 percent over four years, to pay for them.
(about a $6,000 increase in its bi monthly bill) and Evanston Township High School District 202 (about $2,000).
The change still leaves Evanston with one of the lowest water rates of surrounding communities. According to a report by city staff, Evanston's new rate of $2.23 per 1,000 gallons of water up from $2.03 per 1,000 gallons is the third lowest out of 17 neighboring communities.
"The rate modification adopted at that time more equitably distributed the cost of the water fund operations based on the customer's usage Manolo Blahnik Bridal Shoes 2017
This rate increase could be the first of several as staff looks to increase revenue for proposed capital improvements at the water treatment facility and in the water distribution system.
Aldermen also approved a Jan. 1, 2011 change to the sewer rate, which staff said is necessary to cover operating, capital improvements and debt payment.
The only places where water is cheaper are Chicago, where residents pay $2.01 per 1,000 gallons, and Highland Park, where the rate is $2.22 per 1,000 gallons, according to Evanston officials.
Some of the largest tax exempt entities affected by the change include Northwestern University which will see its bi monthly sewer bill increased by about $27,000, NorthShore University HealthSystem Evanston Hospital Alexander Mcqueen Boots Shopstyle
