Proposed increases for water rates over the next two years are on the agenda for Wednesday’s meeting of the Westminster City Council.

According to a report from Public Works Director and City Engineer Marwan Youssef , a typical single family household customer now paying $29.84 per month would see an increase to $33.35 on Nov. 9 of 2017, and then a hike to $35.15 in November 2018.

The increases would cover “pass through” costs from Southern California Edison, the Orange County Water District and the Metropolitan Water District of Orange County.

The council meets in its chambers at 8200 Westminster Blvd. at 7 p.m. This is the only meeting for November; the next meeting will be on Dec. 13.
