Survey says: Clinton water rates are middle of the road.
A recent survey of Illinois communities shows Clinton water rates are almost middle of the road. Monday night at the Clinton City Council meeting, Commissioner of Public Property John Wise points out the voices complaining about water rates are simply misinformed.
According to Wise, the highest cost for water in Illinois actually is in DeWitt County. Wise points out residents in the Village of DeWitt pay over $100 a month for water.
Wise says it is nice to have an independent report to show the community their efforts to keep water rates as low as they can are in fact effective.
