Bloomfield Hills water, sewer rates not going up

By Lisa Brody


Residents living in Bloomfield Hills will not see either their water or sewer rates increase for fiscal year 2021-2022, after city commissioners unanimously approved resolutions at their meeting on Tuesday, June 8, to maintain the same rates as the current fiscal year.


The new fiscal year begins July 1.


“Based on a review of the city's water and sewer financial condition, as well as discussions with Oakland County Water Resource Commission (WRC) and Hubbell, Roth & Clark (HRC), we feel there are adequate resources to continue the necessary operations and maintenance, complete in-progress capital improvement projects, cash finance upcoming regional projects, and provide for a necessary risk and resiliency study, without increasing rates,” city manager David Hendrickson informed commissioners.


The water rate pass through from Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) and Southeastern Oakland County Water Authority (SOCWA) will remain at $47.96 per metered cubic foot (MCF) used and $43.75 per meter equivalent unit (MEU) fixed quarterly charge is necessary.


For sewer rates, the sanitary sewer rate is $35.58 per MCF of water sales, and a $15 per MEU quarterly charge is necessary.


Commissioners voted 5-0 to approve.
