Monthly rate increase coming soon to the City of Biloxi
Residents of Biloxi will soon see a rate increase on specific monthly bills.
The rate increase will impact the water and sewer service and garbage collection of 15,000 residents. The new water rate will increase by about two percent for majority of users.
Garbage and recycling rates will see an increase of 30 cents a month. Biloxi officials say the increase is very small. Biloxi Public Affairs Manager Vincent Creel said, “The majority of our customers aren’t even going to see a notice. You’re going to have to really look at the bill to see this. To give you an example if you use between 4 and 6,000 gallons of water a month in Biloxi which is what most people do, it’s going to go up three cents a gallon.”
The increase will begin October 1st.
