Utility bill calculations changing

As part of the Johnson Controls contract with the City of Marquette, which includes Automated Metering Infrastructure (AMI), there needs to be a change in how water utility bills are calculated. Previously, bills were calculated using a charge per 100 Cubic Feet (CCF). AMI will require that bills be calculated using a charge per 1,000 gallons (KGAL).

After the Marquette City Commission approved Ordinances 661 & 662 to amend the water and sewer rates to bill per KGAL, this conversion will take effect starting with the January 2018 billing cycle.

The Base Rates will remain unchanged. Usage rate calculation factors for Water/Sewer utility customers will change as follows:

  1. Water users not paying property taxes or payment-in-lieu of tax: from $5.45 per CCF to $7.29 per KGAL.
  2. All other water users: from $5.00 per CCF to $6.68 per KGAL.
  3. All Sewer customers: from $7.70 per CCF to $10.29 per KGAL.

This conversion will not result in an increase for an average residential customer on their monthly water bill.

January 2018

Winter is upon us and the snow is already several inches (if not feet) deep. Marquette and the surrounding area, however, keeps moving forward and keeps pace with the seasons. It seems that no matter the season there is always something going on and something to do.
Let me give you a few examples. By the time you read this, we will most likely be in the middle of the Holiday season and the annual downtown New Year’s Eve Ball Drop is probably something that you don’t want to miss. It will be held in the 100 block of West Washington Street and attended by thousands of revelers. The annual Heikki Lunta Festival will be held in Negaunee on Jan. 19-20. The 131st annual Suicide Hill Ski Jumping Tournament in Ishpeming will be held on Jan. 23. The annual Noquemanon (Noque) Ski Marathon will be held Jan. 26. The race begins in Ishpeming and ends in Marquette. Last, but surely not least, the annual UP 200 and Midnight Run Dog Sled Race will be held Feb. 16-18.

These are but a few upcoming events as I’m sure there are many more. I would suggest going to the website Marquette365.com for a more complete calendar of events. The website, which is provided by the Chamber of Commerce and community supported, is still somewhat in its infancy but is updated frequently.
Now, go out and enjoy the winter because, before you know it, spring and summer will be here with another list of events that just seem to keep coming.
