MSD panel sets hearings on 2018 rate hike

The Rate Commission of the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District is reviewing MSD’s latest proposal for a rate increase.

The sewer district says that its 2018 stormwater capital rate proposal will address localized flooding and erosion problems. The annual charge is expected to be about $27 per year or $2.25 per month for the average single-family homeowner.

The commission is holding public hearings in May and June to present information to the public on the proposed rate hike. A meeting was held last week at the Sunset Hills Community Center, and future public hearings will be held at the following places:

  6 p.m. Thursday, May 17 – Manchester Parks, Recreation and Arts Center, 359 Old Meramec Station Road, Ballwin.

  6 p.m. Tuesday, May 22 – Maryland Heights Community Center, 2300 McKelvey Road, Maryland Heights.
