The Hailey City Council will consider a plan tonight, Aug. 12, to increase wastewater user fees by 10 percent and metered water user fees by 9 percent.

     The city is required to hold a public hearing when raising fees by more than 5 percent, and only after two public notices about the proposed change.

     A city memo states that the current wastewater fee has not been increased since 2014, “while the cost of operation has gone up.” The current water fee schedule has been in place since 2015.
