Water Gas and Light rates going up


Albany Water Gas and Light customers will see an increase in their water bill.

Thursday morning the Water Gas and Light board approved the utility's $127 million budget for the upcoming fiscal year.

It's a nearly $5 million increase from the current year.

Water rates will rise 3.5 percent.
Gas and electricity rates are expected to increase 3 percent and 5 percent respectively, but those rises depend on how hot the summer is and how cold a winter comes.

Other increases include a $2 charge for credit card payments and $15 late fee charge, up from $6.
