No Water Rate Increases in 2017 - How Did We Do It?

This month about half of our customers are receiving their first water bills in 2017 (everyone else will see their first bill in February). Some are getting their final quarterly bill while others are getting their first monthly bill. Whether you are receiving a quarterly or monthly bill, you’ll note that your Cleveland Water rates are staying the same in 2017. This is the second year in a row with no rate increases, and that will continue into 2018 as well. It’s not always that utility companies can do that for you, so naturally, it begs the question “how did we do it?”

Setting the Record Straight on Tax Delinquencies

At Cleveland Water, we think it is critically important that our customers have access to accurate information about our services and the various ways we work with customers on a daily basis.
