New Water Rates to be in effect beginning in April, 2019
On August 14, 2018, the Edgartown Board of Water Commissioners voted to adjust the water rates beginning with the April 2019 billing cycle. This decision was made after much consideration and the careful examination of several rate structure options, as well as the projected operational expenses of the Water Department. We are very pleased to have held the present rate structure for the past nine years. However, due to the increase of operational costs, supplies, utilities and materials, our present rate structure is not expected to meet the budgetary needs of the Water Department in the next fiscal year. We believe that we have served the community well by maintaining this water rate for nine years, while still meeting the potable water and fire protection needs of the community.
