Sewer Rates to Remain Unchanged for 9th Consecutive Year

The last time the Sewer Department raised its rates was in 2008 – eight fiscal years ago. Now, make it a nine-year streak.

"For the eighth year in a row, we haven't raised rates," Sewer Commissioner Richard Cenedella told the Finance Committee's Sewer subcommittee on April 12, as that subcommittee reviewed its proposed Fiscal Year 2017 budget.

"We're not looking for a rate increase in FY17," added Sewer Superintendent John Mainini

For comparison purposes, the federal Consumer Price Index rose by 12.2 percent over the past eight years. According to a study released on March 16 by the Environmental Finance Center at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, the average annual cost for sewer use for Massachusetts homeowners is $756 per year. For Milford, the study reported that sewer bills account for about seventh-tenths of one percent (0.74 percent) of median household income, based on the U.S. Census Bureau's five-year American Community Survey estimates for 2010 – 2014.
