First Reading of Ordinance No. 140, 2020, Amending Chapter 26 of the Code of the City of Fort Collins to Revise Water Rates, Fees, and Charges.The purpose of this item is for Council to consider the above-listed electric and water rate ordinances, adjusting monthly charges for both electric and water services in 2021. The revenue requirements to support the 2021 budget require increasing monthly charges for electric service by 3.0%. Additionally, a reduction in pricing is proposed for the voluntary Green Energy program, reducing the charge per kWh from 1.9 cents per kWh to 1.6 cents per kWh in 2021. A 2% increase for water services is proposed to help offset mitigation costs related to the Cameron Peak Fire. Upon adoption, both rates would be effective January 1, 2021.
