NID Rate Increases on Agenda

Water rate increases are on the agenda for the Nevada Irrigation District Board of Directors meeting this week.  NID Finance Manager Jim Mulberg says they are looking at a 6 percent increase which  means the average household user would seen their 2 month water bill increase by $4.33 cents and Irrigation customers with a half-miners-inch would pay $28 dollars more for 6 months.  Mulberg says the rate increase is to make income meet cost of operation.
