At the Tuesday meeting of the city council, Mayor Wendy Judisch presented a resolution of intent to increase sewer rates and establish new system development fees. The rates proposed are $27. per month for the base with $2.75 per 1,000 gallons after the first 1,000 gallons.
This comes to a $1.42 per month increase on the base and 50-cents per 1,000 gallon increase on the overage.
This rate is a .42-cent increase over what was the original rate proposed at the last meeting.
The mayor explained the reason for the intended rates is based on the bond requirements for coverage. The last sewer increase was in 2009.

I have lived in Conrad with my husband Cale and our son for almost seven years. There are many ideas I would like to implement, and I look forward to enhancing the lives of the Conrad/Valier Senior Community and bringing more people into our lovely spaces for community and private events.
I am excited for the opportunity to get some activities going on a regular basis that improve both the lives of the community’s Seniorsas well as the populations of Conrad and Valier as a whole.I strongly believe that respect and active support for the generations that come before us is vital for every community to thrive and grow.Relieving the loneliness and boredom that can come along with aging is a huge part of keeping seniors enthusiastic, active members of our community.
