Kirksville residents will pay about $2.00 more per month on their water and sewage utility bill next year.

The Kirksville City Council approved the increase 4-1 in order to make sure the city is generating enough revenue to run the system.

Every year, the city of Kirksville takes a look at utilities to ensure costs are being covered effectively.

Kirksville Finance Director Lacy King wrote up the report detailing the utlility rates must be a set at a level so the city can “pay operations and maintenance costs, pay the principal and interest on State Revolving Loan Fund bonds, ensure the net operating revenues are equal to or greater than 110 percent of the annual debt service, provide sufficient reserves to pay debt of service, and provide sufficient reserves to pay debt service and to ensure protection and integrity of the systems.”
