A Westlake Water Rate Position Paper (from 2013)
Public Works Director Jarrod Greenwood wrote a position paper regarding the various rate structures used by municipalities across the nation and the theory behind Westlake's water and wastewater structure. We hope you find this paper helpful in understanding the rate model adopted by the Town of Westlake. While specific quantities of usage noted in this paper are not up to date, the theory behind the model is still valid today.
