GLENDALE, Ariz. – Glendale is hosting a series of four public open house meetings to gather
community feedback about utility services and proposed utility service rate adjustments.
Currently underway, the City of Glendale Utility Rate Study Update is being conducted as part of
the city’s ongoing efforts to maintain the highest levels of safe, efficient and reliable delivery of water,
sewer and solid waste services to Glendale residents and businesses.
As part of this study, the city’s Public Works and Water Services departments are jointly conducting
in-depth evaluations to examine existing costs incurred by the city for residential solid waste and water and
wastewater services and to determine the necessary rate adjustments going forward in the continued
delivery of quality utility services.
Although residential solid waste service rates have not been increased since 2008 and city water
and sewer utility rates have held steady since 2010, the study has shown that an increase in current utility
rates is now necessary to fund on-going and needed operating and maintenance costs (examples include
fuel, electricity, chemicals), as well as future capital improvement projects (solid waste trucks and
equipment, water/sewer line replacements, water/sewer plant improvements and upgrades) and to
maintain the city’s Enterprise Funds balance requirements.
