Public Hearing Announcement

The City Council of Palm Coast will conduct a public hearing to deliberate on a proposed increase in utility rates. Join us on:

  • Location: City Hall, 160 Lake Ave, Palm Coast, FL, 32164

Overview of Utility Rate Study

The City of Palm Coast has recently concluded a comprehensive utility rate study, emphasizing the need for strategic planning to secure a sustainable future. The study's findings indicate the necessity to update existing monthly water and wastewater rates to address operating expenditures, capital funding requirements, debt service payments, and bond coverage needs.


Focus Areas Identified by the Rate Study

Continued Inflationary Impacts

  • Addressing rising operational costs, including fuel, power, and chemicals, through reasonable rate adjustments to maintain service levels.

Capital Improvements

  • A ten-year plan outlines crucial upgrades and system capacity improvements, covering water treatment plants, wastewater treatment plants, wells, wellfields, PEP system upgrades, and a maintenance operations complex.

Regulatory Compliance

  • Adapting to evolving regulations to meet new rules and requirements set by regulatory agencies, ensuring the health and safety of the community.

Aging Equipment

  • Recognizing a significant portion of the city's utility infrastructure in service for over 50 years, emphasizing the need for renewal and replacement for a reliable and efficient utility system.

Financial Creditworthiness

  • Ensuring the city's financial creditworthiness and maintaining a favorable bond rating are crucial for accessing necessary funding for future projects. Responsible rate adjustments play a vital role in achieving financial stability.

Proposed Solutions

The City Council is considering two options for rate adjustments:

  1. Option 1: 12.5% increase, effective October 1, 2024.
  2. Option 2: 6% increase on April 1, 2024, followed by another 6% increase on October 1, 2024.

Impact on Residents

The typical single-family residential monthly bill (3,800 gallons) is currently $86. With Option 1, it would be approximately $97 per month starting October 1, 2024. Efforts were made to protect seniors and low-income residents, introducing a Lifeline Tier with minimal increases.


The City of Palm Coast is committed to transparency and community involvement. Join us on February 20, 2024, at 9:00 a.m. at City Hall to participate in the public hearing and contribute to the decision-making process for the sustainable future of our city.
