Ordinance No. 124-13 established water rates for a period of five years from 2014 with the last increase effective on January 1, 2018. On November 6, 2018, the citizens of Toledo paved the way for historic regional cooperation through passage of a Charter Amendment allowing the creation of the Toledo Regional Water Commission, charged with continuing to provide a safe and dependable water supply at the lowest cost for all customers.

The City of Toledo now can proceed to establish an improved rate design that supports continued infrastructure investment, adds water affordability measures and ties customer costs directly to water use. This ordinance establishes rates for water service for the years 2020 through 2023 that will cover existing and future debt service incurred to fund the cost of water infrastructure improvement projects, and provide sufficient funds for the proper operation and maintenance of the water treatment plant and distribution system.
