Water and wastewater rates remain low
Water and wastewater rates in Highlands Ranch remain among the lowest in the south metro region, even with a 3.3 percent increase this year. The changes are primarily due to inflation, increasing costs for utilities, repair services, wages and benefits.
The proposed changes over a 12-month period for 2017 total $792. That compares to 2016 rates of $923 for the City of Littleton, $1,229 for the Town of Parker, and $1,820 for Roxborough. These numbers are based on rates for a typical single-family customer with a 7,500 sq. ft. lot.
