The Missouri Public Service Commission approves a rate change request from Missouri American Water Company.
For Mexico customers, the inclining block rate pilot program will continue, but at reduced rates.
Currently the first 1,000 gallons of water used per month costs $6.2469.
In the new rate plan, the first 3,000 gallons used per month will be billed at $5.7266 per 1,000 gallons.
The next 7,000 gallons will cost $7.1583 per 1,000 gallons and over 10,000 gallons per month will cost $7.9027 per 1,000 gallons.
