Why are city sewer rates increasing for 2018?

To generate sufficient funds for the sewer system, Fridley adopted new rates for 2018. The single biggest sewer expense is the discharge fees we pay to the Metropolitan Council. As they increase their fees to pay for maintenance and expansion of the treatment plant, we must increase our fees. In addition, the city needs to reconstruct our sewer collection system, reline our sewer pipes and replace a jet truck used to maintain our sewer lines.
