Newton Illinois Sewer and Electric Rates increased by 5% on 5/1/2016
Your Electric and sewer rates went up by 5% on 5/1/16. There was no action taken by the
city council because in the upside down world of the Newton Illinois city council utility rates
go up automatically every year and  they would have to take   action to have them not
increase.

You can also expect a additional electric rate increase because a "rate study" has been
ordered. The council has "loaned out" so much of the electric departments reserves that
they need replenished, they have lots more ideas for your money.
