Consideration to Accept a Request for Proposal for a Utility Rate Study and to enter into an agreement with NewGen Strategies & Solutions for the Study


The City has a rate study prepared by NewGen Strategies & Solutions which laid out a road map for the City's utility rates. When the study was put together the City knew that when the wastewater plant was nearing construction we would need to re-evaluate the study. It has been about five years and we are preparing to bid the wastewater plant. There are numerous new new items to review and two new developments that will have a large impact on the model which are the funding and the estimated cost of the plant has increased. 

Suggested Motion: I move to approve the proposal from NewGen Strategies & Solutions, in the amount of $39,500 and authorize the Mayor to sign the proposal.
