On April 5th, Norman residents will take to the polls to vote on a potential water rate increase.
An increase to the water rate of each household and business is considered for project funding and was approved to go to a vote of the people by Norman City Council in January 2022. The City of Norman has not seen a water rate increase since 2015, though costs for associated equipment and chemicals for service have continued to rise. The City of Norman Utilities Department has also operated with the same amount of staff since 2010 and intends to keep the current staff structure in place for the foreseeable future.
