The City of Camdenton has received notification from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources requiring the City to increase their Primacy Fee that is charged to each customer with a water meter. Camdenton City Administrator Jeff Hooker explains.
This increase is effective January 1, 2022, and the increase varies depending on the size of the meter. For most residential customers, the increase will be $0.19 per month. The City is simply a pass-through agency for this fee. Hooker said he does not know why the increase is happening now but says it does happen periodically.
Residents, as well as businesses, will be affected by the increase.
