Board of Public Utilities to increase water and sewer rate Jan. 1


CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The City of Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities is reminding Cheyenne utility users that an 8% water and 10% sewer rate increase goes into effect Jan. 1. The city’s governing body approved these rate increases during the annual budget session in June 2023.

This increase is necessary for the cost of continued services Cheyenne businesses and residents expect. Revenues from water and sewer rates are invested directly back into the construction, maintenance and operation of Cheyenne’s water and sewer system. Funding for the water and sewer system comes from water and sewer sales and fees, grants, loans and water and sewer enterprise fund cash. All day-to-day operating costs and unplanned work, such as water main leaks, are paid solely by rates and fees.
